View Full Version : Arhh first day back. How did u cope?
I am going back to work only as a fill in, so I wont be working that often, but my first time back since having DD (15mths) is on saturday night (chef). Im so scared as its been 16mths since I worked, and I dont know if Im going to be able to handle the stress of cooking meals for lots of people, as most likely I'll be thinking about what dd is doing at home with her dad.
So to all you working mummys how did you handle your first day back?
Well, I stressed my butt of and cried as I was walking out the door, seeing DD's little face watching me made it so much harder. Once I was there it was fine and by my third shift it was so much of a routine that it was okay. Now its normal for us. Don't get me wrong some days its still hard to leave DD but she has a ball with just her daddy and I quite like the me time of work. Plus it has made me appreciate the time we do have together and makes it soo much more special.:hugs: to you though because it is tough.:hugs:
:smiliedance: I went back to work last week and i was really looking forward to it i love my job so i didn't think about it i went back on night shift so my bub didni't even know i was gone and then she got to play with grandma all the next day so she was fine. CK donesn't have any problems being left with other pepole so that makes it alot easier thank god..
I don't know how i would cope if she was crying glad she is easy going baby. Time will tell if she will still be like this when she gets older (she only 5 months now) I only have to go to work 5 days a fortnight until next year so we will see how she goes then.. I think that might be a bit harder.
I was in a similar situation to you. I went back to work as a fill in (hairdresser) when DD was about 12 months. I hadnt worked for 14 months so I was so scared! I had a lot of trouble leaving bub, but when I saw that she was ok with it, I was ok too.
The first day was very busy so it was incredibly draining for me but I was so pleased with myself when I got to the end of the day!
I have done a few shifts since then & am now doing one day a week. DD loves spending time with someone other than mummy for a change & I enjoy the independance for the day. I hate being away from DD but I know it is good for us both so I do it anyway.
Good luck with your first day back. Let us know how it goes! :hugs:
Thanks guys for the replies. Tomorrow is the big first day back Im soooo scared. But Im sure it'll be fine. I will report in on how I went.
