Further to my whinge of yesterday about bubby being in daycare while I am at my new job, I decided not to wait any longer, so I just talked to the HR lady and she is going to see if I can work shorter hours.
I said I would be flexible and would be available to work a full day when it got busy but most days would be the shorter hours. I said I am happy to come in every day, just not for the whole day because its too long a day for bubby in daycare. I also said that I reckoned that I could do the job in shorter hours and that I was enjoying it and wanted to stay, but of course I couldnít do it knowing my baby was unhappy (insert some blubbering here).
I blamed it all on bubby and said that the daycare lady had told me that he is not settling in very well and that she thinks the transition was too sudden. Poor bubby gets the blame when really its mummy that is suffering!
I bawled when I was talking to her. I knew I would, I even took a tissue in with me. I have been feeling so emotional about it all day.
So I am finishing at 2pm tomorrow and the next day and hopefully from now on.
She was really nice about it and said she would see what she could do but it really depended on what the role required. I reiterated that I reckoned I could do the role in shorter hours and said that if they let me do that then I would be so grateful and would work like a demon so they would really get their moneyís worth. I also reiterated that I would be able to work longer hours when it really needed it.
So, I find out tomorrow if its ongoing. If not then I will finish up (which she knows, I mean, I am hardly going to stay if my baby is unhappy am I?). Hopefully they canít be bothered re-recruiting someone.
Will keep you posted.
