Hi, I am the mother of a wonderful 11 month old little boy. I have just finished 12 months of maternity leave and started a new job as a solicitor. The job is 3 days per week and I've completed one day. My question is, does it get easier leaving them behind? My mum is caring for my son until he gets a place in daycare but the whole day I just wanted to cry. I missed him so much. Is it normal to be like this? If so, how long did it last?
