Have any of you written a proposal to your place of work to work from home, after the baby comes? Was your proposal approved?
My situation is I commute 1.5 hours (each way) to and from work. What I do only requires a lap top, and phone line. When the baby comes there is no way I can be in the car for 3 hours a day. Quitting is not an option as I am the primary bread winner and I can't afford to be on unpaid leave, but I also can not afford day care at $300/week (yes that is the lowest rate) here in California. Plus, I do not want some stranger watching my baby! I am a first time mom. How do I make this work?
