Get a cleaner. That was the hardest thing I found about working full time - that my weekends were cut down to 1 day with all the washing and cleaning.
My son didn't do as well as I'd hoped he would being away from me full time. I found it hard. However, I had his days split up 2 days with 1 gma, 2 days with the other and then one at dc. If I could do it again I would make it more consistent like you are doing. I think that would have helped.

I second the cleaner, pre-packing bags the night before, ordering groceries on line and routine routine routine. Bub may be unsettled at first but if you keep a routine in the mornings and evenings it will help. When going into daycare have something you do each morning to let bub know what's coming. When my boy was little it was helping me to open the daycare gate each morning. He played with the sign on it too. This was a daily game and helped prepare him for what was coming...

My MIL has retired, she doesn't do slot and gets very bored so maybe I'll ask her if she would like to clean the house and I'll pay her.

I'm in the process of looking for a new ft job.
My son is 18 months and I think he needs the socialization that he just isn't getting at the moment.
I've just had a text from recruitment firm about a job that is 10hr days!
It will be a huge change but I need the stimulation as well
Fx it all goes ok for you

Just bumping this up.
I go back to full time work next week. My DD had been doing half days at daycare to get her used to it, now I'm doing full days. I picked her up last night around 5pm as this will be the ongoing time as of next week, well she's was so tired and so grumpy. I feel so sick to know this will be 5 days per week.
How did other people find these long days? DD is only 10 months but I'm stressing the little time that I will have with her every night will be horrible. I'm so scared I won't be able to get through this.
Will it get easier!!!!!
