I feel like this makes me the minority. After 6 years with Target, I have decided not to return from my maternity leave. It was a hard decision to make, but I've actually been offered a job where I can take my daughter to work with me, and Target has nothing to offer that can compete with that. I feel very fortunate that, for the most part, I've been blessed with amazing co-workers and fair ETLs. My time spent as a team lead developed my leadership skills immensely, and I know I have grown to be a completely different person because of my dues paid to the Bullseye. I know we like complaining (you almost HAVE TO to get through your days!) but I would be lying if I said I wasn't sad to be closing this chapter of my life. I think I might be the only person my HR has ever seen crying while filling out my two-week termination form. :) Anyway, thank you for being my griping buddies over the years, you can bet I will still be lurking to keep tabs on Spot! :)

Good luck to you! If you did a good job I'm sure you could come back to Target in a few years when your kid gets bigger!

Shoe, this is the epitome of life/work balance.
That you realized how much you'd grown thru spot says a lot.
That you realize how much more your family needs you speaks volumes.
Keep in touch & let us know how your little girl is doing.
