DS was 9 months when I went back to work 2 days a week, (Wednesday and Thursday) I was also 3 months pregnant so instead of daycare MIL offered to take him on those days until I started leave again.
DD was just shy of 12 months when I went back again 2 days a week (Monday Tuesday) this time, DH chose to stay home with the kids on the 2 days I was at work. This by far was the best option for us, if I hadnt of been made redundant, we would probably still have this arrangement in place.
I have just started working again, Thursday, Friday and alternating weekends, this time since the kids are a bit older, and craving social interaction we have gone the day care route for thursday and friday. I only work school hours so drop off pick up is easy and ATM they are loving it, so at the momment this arrangement is working very well, but since im still casual things could change quickly.
If I had a choice I would work the middle of the week, and consecutive days,that way there is no interference with the weekend
