I have been with my company for almost 2 years. When I first started, I had two kids 6 and 1 years olds. While at work, I did not tell anyone that my family was expecting a third child. Since then, I have been promoted and my third child is 6 months old. Now, I don’t know what to do.
I work in accounting in a corporate environment. There have been a couple of levels of corporate structure changes to cut cost and “stay lean”. I have had 3 different bosses since I started; colleagues have been terminated, managers have left. At first, I was glad that I did not tell anyone about my 3rd kid because of all the craziness going on. Now things are more stable and I have been promoted. But I feel kind of lost about what to do. I have been asked a couple of times how many kids I have and I feel bad about lying. Plus I am thinking my supervisor and management knows. I wonder if I could get fired for this.
I have developed REALLY good relationships with my co-workers. Its tough having to keep my personally life so discrete.
This job was a big step up for my career and especially with the the promotion 4 months ago. I figure I will work a couple of more months and then find another job and start over. Its tough because I am doing well and get along with everyone.
I have not told co-workers because, I people were already shocked I had two kids at age of 29. I started off at entry level pay and my wife does not work. I am paid very competitively then and now, but I did not want to be judged about my personal life.
My plan is to sit for my CPA in the next year and continue to provide for my family. Please pray for me and my family. Thanks.
