I can see that this thread has been done to death but I want to ask some questions that I cant see have been answered.
So first a little background, DS is 27months, he is a bit of a handful sometimes. Right now me and DF both work fulltime. We want to buy a house. DF's job is fulltime but it is actually casual, he brings in ok money. As for me, I am 20 so I only get 85% of an adults wage and I work for a not-for-profit, so I am paid a base level (basically what hey legally have to and that is it). We are not getting anywhere finacially and sometimes still live week to week. this is the reasoning to DF sourcing a FIFO job.
I would quit my fulltime job and hopefully find a 2-3 day a week job that wasnt as demanding as my current job.
We just need a house deposit - which hopefully wont take longer than a year if he gets a good job.
So here are my q's -
Did your toodler change when your partner started FIFO? How?
Was your toddler excited when your partner returned home each time?
How did you handle your partner being away?
What timetable worked best? DF may possible be doing 3on 1 off.
The thing I am most scared of is how it will effect DS.
Thanks in advance
