View Full Version : Very Sad about leaving my little princess
I am really struggling with having to go back to work full time next week. Everytime I look at Isobel I feel so sad that I am not going to be with her to put her in bed for her sleeps etc.
Can anyone give me some positive experiences to help me deal with this
I am a full time working mum and it really helps me to have some "us" time each day. Just DD and I. I usually only see her for 5-10mins in the morning, so for us the afternoon works best. We read some books and have some play time and last night we even made a cake together.
It does take some time, but you will get yourselves into a routine that allows plenty of quality time together.
Just remember - housework is so much less important than quality playtime!
Good luck for next week.
Just remember its not how much time you spend with your child its what you do with them for that time is important.
I work as well and at first i didnt like someone else looking after dd but after time i can see that she is happy and well adjusted and i think its good that she gets to experience different things during the week.
But don't stress yourself out or try to be super woman otherwise you will tire yourself out.
Thanks for that - I know that I will have atleast time in the morning to feed her her bottle so I will make sure that she has plenty of cuddles then and I will also have 1.5 hours with her at night, like you said dinner etc will have to come second. In fact I think that I am going to get a cleaner in each week so that I dont' have to worry about the house - one of the advantages of working.
:hugs: How are you going? I am in your situation in a couple of weeks, back to work full time and DD will be in daycare. She is actually there now and it is horrible, I miss her so much but I know that I am doing what is best for our family despite what other people think.
:hugs: Oh you poor Mumma, I can totally empathise with you. How did your first week go?
I'm returning to work next Tuesday (4 days a week) and my DS will be in family daycare and I'm absolutely dreading it. DH is a shift worker and is home at lunchtime so DS will only be in care 8-1 most days, but I'm just going to miss him so much!!!!!
I'm very lucky though in that my carer lives just around the corner so I can maximise my time with DS in the morning - he gets up at about 6 and I can drop him off at 8. And I'm going to work through lunch every day so I can get home as quickly as I can in the evenings!
The housework can totally wait - I'm buying a slow cooker too so that I can put that on in the mornings and dinner will be done when I get home :fingerscrossed:
Anyway I hope that you are doing OK, and you aren't alone, if you need some support - I know I probably will!
