Sonja- had to lol big time at your "hopefully their sick days will be on my days off" haha! I'll out my order in too please
Thanks guys. I really appreciate your responses with experience on this. We are both career people, but we are also dedicated and hands in parents who thrive on spending our family time together and making it as focused as we can. I am seeing and hearing that there's not many parents in this situation, and I can see why, but there is a group that do do it, and it can be done in an effective way by the sounds. We're also open to changing things where needed as we go, so it's not that we're completely inflexible. I am also keen to keep my career that I've worked hard for, and I do believe I can do both, and so far, am doing both. We run a tight ship on the work days, a really structured situation, which is has to be for it to work for us. The non work days are far less structured, which is working well. I also want my kids to see that part as well, that mum & dad can both retain a career, and that it's a process of negotiation and being flexible where it's needed.
