    Happy to report that we have both beautifully adapted to our new routine.

    Daughter is happy as in childcare and for me, work is like I've never left. So not awesome but not terrible either. Just something that has to be done to be able to pay the bills 😉

    DP and I have discussed what we would do and agreed part time work after 12 months maybe working 1-2 days a week and then I probably wouldnt go back to full time work until all our kids have gone to school.. I guess if I am missing that adult interaction I could probably increase days later on

    I went back a day a week and every third weekend at 7wks....(10-11h day from 10wks, started on short days at 7wks, '8hrs' ....
    I wanted to go back more but mum who was looking after him suddenly ended up with my bro's dd full time.... So I added more days at 6 mths, which I was dying to do but I must admit it was easier leaving him at 7w than 6 mths! I did 3 reg weekdays from 6 mths and still do (21mths) still bf, gave up my weekends at 8 mths got sick of dh being unreliable and always having something crop up! 3 days is great, although somehow it feels like there's only 2 days in the week left, not 4! Lol!
    Still have leave hours since I had so many, work aholic pre Bub, 15y of no hols!
