I am returning to work after dc2 in June. Hopefully 4 days a week. I am feeling a bit overwhelmed at the thought of working, managing a household and giving the dc's enough attention.

Tell me about all the good things about returning to work!

A bit of personal space
Hot cups if tea
Can make phone calls and book appointments in peace
Can go to the shops in your lunch hour or order shopping online grin.

-Talking to grown ups uninterrupted about non child related things
-Lunch hours
-Hot tea uninterrupted
-Feeling a sense of achievement that I do a task and then it's done- get so frustrated at home cleaning and tidying just gets undone the minute you turn your back!
- seeing my kids at the end of the day and having missed them

So many more I am such a better mum when I'm working!
- days off with the kids are precious and a relish the moment
-giving my kids someone else who loves them In the form of childcare
- knowing they will settle without me brings freedom
