I took 2 of my babies to work with me.

I worked in a small glass shop in the office. With my 2 youngest sons I was able to bring them to work, which was wonderful for saving money on child care and being able to nurse on demand. This was in 1983-84, and again in 1992. I've always been so grateful for the opportunity.

After about 7 months they were too mobile to make it work anymore, so they went to a sitter. But I am so happy I got that time with them.
