In my family and with friends it is kind of the norm to return to work casual/part time when bub is around 1.
When I went on mat leave a year ago, I told my work that i would return feb 2013 when ds turns 1. At the time that suited us financially.
Anyway, since then Dh has a higher paying job and I can actually afford to stay home a little longer. Maybe until ds is 2-3yrs old
I've already signed forms and work as organized my schedule for next year (3 days per week) My childrens carer will be my mum/MIL. I have another ds who is 3yrs.
Should I 'beg' work to allow me to stay home a little longer or just bite the bullet and go back?
(I will have a cleaner and dinners cooked by my mum/MIL when I work, so that's all looked after!!)
Im so confused.
