Make the most of the last month at home. Going back to work is hard but it does get easier and within a month or so you’ll have a new routine. You don’t say if you’re going back part time or full time but however much you work, you will have time with your son and that time will be incredible. You’ll pack your working week’s worth of quality time into the time you have at home to make it all extra special. That will become your new normal and you’ll all get used to it. I hope this last month doesn’t go too quickly! x

Hey. Thanks for reading and commenting.

I’ll actually be going back full time but within 4 days a week that include a Saturday. I’m also going to be doing all lates which saves on childcare.

Annoyingly, I don’t have to go back full time, I can afford to do part time, but I’m currently going through issues with my job, so incase I’m made redundant I want to make sure I’m doing full time hours so I get a better package. It’s ridiculous. I’m hoping it’ll go my way which means I will then drop a day or two, but for now I’m technically full time (37hrs a week). I’m going to be knackered but at least it saves on childcare!

Argh! Pressed send too early.

Like you said, I’m really hoping the days i have with T in the week will feel extra special, reserving the fun activities for those days. I’d be interested to know if at changes with me. Thanks again. I appreciate the advice. I’m going to need it. X

Aah, this has got to be so tough, I really feel for you. Would there be options to go back part time? I guess you just have to enjoy the time you have and make the most of the mornings/evenings around work time when you go back. I know it’s not much consolation but when you go back we will be not just blog friends but colleagues too, I’m always around for a coffee to cheer you up in work times πŸ™‚

There’s definitely options to go back part time, work are great, but due to other bloody job issues I’ve chosen to go back full time. Once it all calms down though I’ll definitely be going part time.

I saw via FB and wondered whether you were “job”. I’m so happy! That’ll be great. I’m going to need as much tea as possible. πŸ™‚

This makes me a little sad. It would be so lovely if everyone who wanted to stay home with their little ones could, but that’s not the reality I suppose. Two things I think will happen; firstly, you will cram all of your current enjoyment of him into the reduced time you have together and, secondly, when you go back, you will remember what you loved about your job and then you’ll have two fab things going on in your life, instead of one! I hope I’m right. πŸ™‚

Awww. That’s a really nice way of seeing this. Thank you.

I’m definitely hoping my days off with him will be full of fun and not as stressful as I won’t be trying to fit housework in as well as I’ll reserve that for the mornings of the days I’m working.

I’ve heard quality of time is better than quantity of time, but that’s just so I can make myself feel better. πŸ™‚
