View Full Version : I worked today!!!!
Today I was going to go around to schools and put in my casual number and detail's, but instead I got a call this morning (from a school I rang on Friday) wanting to know if I wanted to work :eek: . Lucky DH was home so he could look after the kids, because Aden slept in and wasn't ready for preschool and I hadn't enrolled Travis yet.
I haven't worked since December last year so I was really nervous, but the big test will be on Thursday when Travis goes to childcare for the first time :eek: . I still don't know If I am doing the right thing, :confused: , Aden loves preschool and has been in some sort of care since he was 5 1/2 months. I will see how things go, if neither us (Traivs or I) are happy I will take him out, and leave going back to next year.
Thankyou, did you miss me :p , thankfully DH is cooking dinner so I can do a quick catch up.
Love the new name :thumbsup:
aww shucks, and here I thought noone would miss me :D
Thankyou, I have made so many nice friends on here, that I would miss everyone if my computer broke down :eek: touch wood that doesnt happen :D
It hit me last night after Travis threw up again after his feed. I just cant leave him yet, not in childcare, maybe next term I will think one day a week. I have so many mixed emotions right now, I know the money would be good for us - things have been tight latley. And it will be even tighter when DH has his holidays. If I had a similar situation to what we had for Aden, I could maybe do it. Anyway I just thought I would let anyone know who has been reading my threads - I know theres a couple of you:D . Thanks for the support :hugs:
Just do what you feel comfortable with.:hugs:
My DS went to part-time childcare when I went back to work (he was under 5 months). I then quit that job and didn't start back in a full time role for over a month when he went back to childcare. He has always loved it there and looks forward now to going to 'school' on daycare days.:)
Thanks Katrina :hugs: , I thought was going to right going back. But it wasn't to be. Aden is still going to childcare one day a week, he loves it!! And I will just have to find something else to keep my mind active...oh bub hub is a good idea :idea: :p .
I have the same mixed emotions. I love staying home with my dd but an ex-colleague mentioned a possible position coming up(it's a rare position opening - i've only seen 1 in the last 4 years) so now I'm in 2 minds of what to do. If I go back it's a great career move and the money would be great and take the pressure off dh but i worry as my dd has separation anxiety as it is - how would she go at daycare? hmmm, there is so much to think about. I have decided that if the position actually does come up then i'll apply for it and let that guide my decision - seeing as I may not get the position in the first place.
Anyway, I have been no help so far but I guess what I'm trying to say is that I know how you feel and empathise with you as it's the hardest decision in the world and no one can make it for you.
Thanks Jess :hugs: , I feel a lot better having made a decision. I will see how things are next term, but i think I will be waiting till next year before I go back. I thought because I handled going back to work when Aden was young I would be able to do with Travis.
Best of luck with your job, let us know how things go.
