I was due to return to my very perfect, very flexible part time job this month after being on maternity leave but I was made redundant instead.
The same company has just offered for me to apply for a full time job in another division. I just couldn't go full time! It makes me feel sick leaving my 3 kids in someone else's care for so long especially my little one 😢 and because I have to commute for more than an hour each way so it's a big day for my kids in school then after school care even when I was working 3 days per week. I said I could stretch to 4 days but not 5 and they said they would consider it if I interview well.
So! My question is, how do you cope being away from your little ones for so long! I can't look at him today without crying! I didn't work at all with my first 2 sons until they were 3 and 4 but now we have a mortgage and we really need the money. We have no family near us so no support network. We would be relying on the daycare centre.
Pros and words of encouragement will be well received!
