Re: Maternity Leave?
I totally agree! I took seven weeks off fulltime, another three part time. Even then, the only thing that made going back to work bearable was that I was lucky enough to find a nanny (and an AWESOME one at that) who provides him 1:1 TLC all day. I feel extremely fortunate that I wasn't faced with my newborn in daycare, it would have made this transition even worse. It goes to show you how the US really doesn't prioritize family leave and raising kids, other than in strict monetary ways, like taxation.
