I'm the main earner in our family. I will be returning to work when bubs is 10 months old.
My dilemma (no n ;-) ) is whether I go back 4 or 5 days. Financially (also calculating cost of childcare) we will lose if I only go back 4 days and we're desperately trying to save to buy a house in this crazy market.
But the thought of putting bub in care every day makes me feel incredibly guilty and sad.
Question: should I work full time now, save and hopefully be able to work less when she's at (eg) school? Or do I work 4 days and give up the extra money to spend more time with her now?
