In addition to my 12 weeks of FMLA, my company allows you to work part-time for another 12 weeks. I just spoke with my boss this afternoon to finalize my part-time hours.
I will be working 20 hours a week from the end of March through the middle of June: Monday through Wednesday and Friday from 6:30 AM to 10 AM, and Thursday from 7 AM to 12 PM and then an hour or so working from home whenever.
These are strange hours, I know, but they will allow us to not have to worry about day care! When I am at work, M will stay home with Carina. I will take him to work when I get home, and then he will work for a few hours later than he normally does.
It will likely be exhausting for both of us, but I think we can do it for 12 weeks. We will save so much money! I am really fortunate that my company is being so flexible in allowing me to do this.
