Can't believe I only have 8 days left of my 14 month maternity leave :-(

Going back full time and DP will be staying at home - I am just so sad ... I want to be home with my babies :-(

Make me feel better!!

14 months shock

And no childcare to worry about envy

We are a sympathetic lot here eh? Its tough love hehe

niggle I know I know I'm lucky. Although doesn't feel it! I want to be the one at home... DP got made redundant and just hasn't found a job to justify paying our childcare for 2 under 5 so is working nights in a supermarket instead.

I took 3 weeks parental leave at the start due to childminder also going on maternity leave then my full year then holiday...we have never been so skint!!!

Wait until you have had a lovely leisurely sandwich, over an hour long lunchbreak, while drinking a hot cup of tea and surfing the internet. Babies, what babies....

sympathy from me. I know some people have it much harder but that doesn't mean you have to put up and shut up ;) . course it is going to be hard for you. but like a PP says you might just even enjoy it....slightly smile

I am going back in 2 and a half weeks and have to move house before I am back. So I sympathise, it is tough.

I'm due to start full time next week. I feel really guilty. I'm just going to jam as much as I can with my daughter in the weekends and hope things get easier..
