Job # 3
The years glided by and I got married and started a family. I had moved on to a different sewing factory, one that paid more and there I sewed baby clothes. Since I was a good, hard worker, the boss had no problem hiring me back after I would quit for a while to care for my babies. It was an on again/off again job> It's not easy working full time when babies need to be cared for at home. I never burned my bridges though, and was always welcomed back after a leave of absence.
|The girls threw a surprise baby shower |
for me just weeks before I gave birth to my first.

for the backwards photo.
The finest shift I ever had was 11PM to 7AM. I could work all night, then be home during the day with my newest baby, Lindsey. We didn't have to pay a sitter.
My dear sister, Lindy lived next door and told me, "If you ever need me to keep Lindsey while you get some sleep... just bring her over."
One morning after I had taken the boys to school, I laid on the sofa and put my infant daughter beside of me on the floor... and I closed my eyes. When I opened my eyes a while later, she was gone!!! I was frantic at first, then ran to Lindy's house next door. I had been so tired, that I didn't remember taking her over there... and no, I did not take drugs of any kind. I was just exhausted and tired.
The next day I gave my two week notice at work...
