    A colleague asked me who was looking after DS when I resumed work.
    Upon telling him DS was going to childcare he asked why bother having kids at all...
    That actually made me laugh such a stupid question

    Another one. You can always 'chose' to move to the country where property/rent costs less. Even if you and your husband both work in highly specialized roles that are only found in the larger cities. Even though unemployment is much higher in the country... you just aren't willing to try hard enough.

    Wow, old thread but a goodie!

    If the kids' dad ever looks after them while you're at work, he's babysitting, doing you a favour or being father-of-the-year material.

    If a colleague has somewhere to be after work and you're going home: you're so lucky to be going home and getting to relax!

    This! People are always surprised when I say DH & I alternate sick/carers leave days for DD...apparently this is different & isn't he awesome for being so fair & sharing the parenting load?

    Rule # xx - If you return to FT hours on return from mat leave it shall be assumed that you do not, in fact, work full time. This goes double if you have flexible work arrangements.

    I have been back at work full time for almost 2 years, but because I work 8-4 instead of 9-5 everyone thinks I am PT.
