It's working for Jill K
Menlo Park, California
"So for me, being an entrepreneur allows me to build something that matters to me while also affording flexibility to spend time with my daughters."
I was granted the six weeks of paid leave under the FMLA and used my vacation to extend it to 13 weeks when my eldest daughter turned 3 moths. I so wish I could have taken more – she was at the best stage right when I had to go back to work and it broke my heart those first weeks.
Oh this is such a challenge for families! We’ve found that a nanny is the right choice for our family because it affords us the flexibility we need with our careers and the consistency and structure our girls crave.
Missing my sweet girls! I know I occasionally miss out on milestones and it breaks my heart but I know that I’m working for them, too.
