Back to full-time work after another maternity leave, and everyone keeps telling me how 'brave' I am.

Arggh! I'm not brave, brave is risking your life for others. I'm just not choosing to work part-time or stay-at-home (both equally as valid choices as beig full-time).

Are You actually back yet? If not you may find you are braver than you think!

I'm back full time soon, I'm already bracing myself for comments like that. Strange that men never get the same comments...

I have returned to work full time 3 days ago, my son is 8 months. I see people at work and when in conversation it comes up / they realise I'm back full time or up front assume I'm part time which I correct, I get the pity, sad look with them feeling so sorry for me.

Seriously not helpful. I have mum guilt like everyone else. Keep your pissing self pity looks to yourself!!
