I got the job as a breastfeeding peer counselor with the health department. It's about 8 hours a week. Most of it I can do from home: sending letters and making phone calls. I also get to teach some of the WIC education classes and do some home visits to help moms and babies have a good breastfeeding experience. I'm really excited to be able to do something I feel strongly about and get paid. I'm nervous too. I haven't had a real job in 4+ years and I'm not really willing to give up much time with my family. I hope that we can make it work. Today I'm supposed to shadow my first home visit. Yeah.
