    Default Remind me why I leave my child to work

    As the title suggests I think I need some reminding as to why I leave my 11 month old to come to work with two faced so and so's.

    I really struggled with returning to work but came to terms with it after awhile. Then everynow and then I have issues with this one co-worker and I am back to square one.

    Sitting here expressing and trying not to cry. Been up all night with a sick bubba only to come to work to find her winging about me to our boss.

    At this point I'm ready to quit!

    Thanks for reading, just needed to vent and hear from others who may be in the same boat.

    Aw big hugs; its really hard to leave them especially when you face that at work.
    My dd is 10mths (& im sitting at work expressing too) but my workplace is great
    Think of the money but if it verges on bullying or discrimination then contact hr

    Just want to offer you some hugs

    I returned to work full time when my DS was young, but I am fortunate to work in a place where there is no b!tching or childish carry-on from anyone I work with.

    It's never easy to be away from your little one, but having the added stress of an unhappy workplace would just make it so much harder

    I hope things get better for you.

    Thanks ladies. I think I'm just over sensitive today which doesn't help. Didn't get much sleep last night and then felt guilty for leaving ds unwell without me.

    Thankfully I am lucky enough for my mum to look after him while I work so he got lots of grandma cuddles to make it through the day.

    I tell myself I work to give us a comfortable life where we don't have to watch every single cent (we are by no means rich) and I do it for ds, but then at the same time I am getting sick of feeling like an outsider at work. No one seems interested in talking to me but are happy to talk to everyone else which seems petty but when you thought these people were your friends it hurts.

    I wonder if I should find another job somewhere else so then atleast I would be an outsider and not the longest serving employee so it wouldn't be so hard to take. But then I worry I would end up somewhere even more *****y.

    They do say better the devil you know!
