I dont know what i am really asking for as i thik i know what i have to do which is go back to work but i just burst intp tears when i think baout leaving my lil girl. I do not have any family local that can help so she would have to go to a nursey which i think will benefit her learning, although i do take her to play groups and swimming groups. My partner really dosent earn a lot at all, but will we benefit with me working, or will this all go on childcare cost?
We need to move i brought a one bed flat years ago which i need to sell asap, so this is a major reason why i think i should go back to work, but i really cant bare the though of leaving her, but i dont know what to do. What are you thoughts? confused

Have you both sat down and looked at your finances inside and out? Is there anywhere you two could pull your belts in?

Would you earn more than your partner if you worked?

If so why does he not be a sahd!

Look at the cost of childcare and work out if it would be a viable option.

Factor in Child Tax Credits and Working Tax Credits as this will supplement your income.

This is what we need to do tonight i have already rang and said we must sit down later, i want to go through our bills and see if we can get anything cheaper.
I dont know how to find out what help we can get if i go back, it would only be part time 3 and hlaf days a week. But i have not left her at all yet and i just don't know if i can!
