I was hoping when you hadn't replied this morning that it had worked out that way. Yay! Hope you had a good day at work.

We went through a little of this with DH, he thought his job was more important as he is the one that works full time, where as I only work casually as well as looking after DD when not working, plus some study which is on hold for now.
Over time he's realised a few things, including that:
- Raising kids is hard work, and is definitely important;
- It takes just as much rest and energy (if not more) to look after DD than do his desk job, he does a lot of night settles now because of this;
- Keeping me in touch with my career is important, particularly if we ever want to venture in to a role reversal where I become the bread winner and DH works only part time or consults; and
- I earn a very good hourly rate, so it's worth it.

If he is full time he would receive sick leave/family leave wouldn't he? So he would still get paid for random days off if need be?
I work part time and DH works full time - we take turns in taking sick leave when the kids are unwell and can't go to day care.
