So I'm about to go back to work after 3 years (eek!) & as silly as it sounds, what I'm most worried about is our night times....
Currently I start dinner around 4:30, & me & the kids sit down to eat somewhere between 5 & 5:30. Husband gets home around 5:30 & joins us for dinner, then I clean the kitchen, he baths the kids, they have a little play with Dad, then stories & bed by 7.
This just won't be possible once I'm back at work, both DP & I will finish work at 5, one of us will have to pick up the kids from care, so realistically we're not all going to be home til 1/4 to 6 or so.
So I'm keen to hear from other working parents how you structure your evenings, what happens when, who does what, & when are the kids in bed by?
I have three weeks to start working towards a new routine, & looking for some help on what my new routine might look like
