So I have two DS - ds1 is 2 1/2, and ds2 is 4 months. I have been at home since I was 7 months pregnant with ds1, so just over 2 1/2 years now.
I hate saying this cause my baby is only 4 months, but I'm going crazy. I'm bored, my high needs spirited toddler is driving me nuts, & my high needs Velcro baby is driving me nuts. & I'm feeling like I'm not being a very good mum to either of them right now.
I feel, for all of us, it would be better if I went back to work part time, two or three days a week, so I can get some of myself back & also so the days I am with them I'm fully present & enjoying them...but I worry about putting a 4 month old in childcare!!
How yong were your babies when they went into childcare & how did they cope?
& are you a better mum if you work part time??
Please no judgement or no comments like "why have kids if someone else is going to raise them" -- I know some people are happy being full time stay at home mums, but after 2 1/2 years I'm done....
