I am just after a place to vent and maybe some advice.
I have an 11 month old and a three year old and a month ago I went back to work part time. I am a teacher and I am working a five day fortnight. This is my dream job, I have my own class and share the responsibility of running my service. I really wanted to stay home longer with my second son but I just felt that I needed to get back into work for me. Also, we have some debts and we really need to clear them. I was excited to go back to work but a month in I feel like I am drowning. My house is a bomb, I can't keep on top of the housework side. I feel like I never get anything completed at work because I am rushing around to get my boys. I feel like all I do is rush around and I am so exhausted at the end of the day. My husband helps when he can but he has a very demanding job and he isn't home a lot at night and can't get away to help in the afternoons.
I really want to work for the company I am with and I have done lots of contracts with them in previous years but this is a permanent job. I feel like I am just doing a half a55ed job all round and I'm not sure if I should quit and try again when the boys are older.
Does anyone have any advice? Will it get easier as I get into a better routine?
Thanks for reading ☺️
