As of today I only work part-time and I cannot tell you how happy this makes me!
Since I went back to work in March I have worked 33 hours over 5 days! I have struggled every morning to get two of us out the door on time. I have struggled two afternoons a week where I’ve wanted to do so much with Scarlett but she has been too tired from Nursery that morning and I have tormented myself over never getting any quality time with Scarlett!
So I got myself a new job and now work 27 hours over 3 days! I am so blimming excited to get 2 days a week with Scarlett all to myself. I feel like I have missed out on so much and I feel terrible for Scarlett always being with someone other than her Mummy.
I knew I had to go back to work because being a stay at home Mum just wasn’t me as much as I loved my year off with her. I hope to have finally found a good balance where I get to keep my identity and still be a brilliant Mum! I now feel so excited for the future with Scarlett as I am going to be so much more involved. I’m already looking into an annual membership to the zoo and researching playgroups we can attend together!
Plus we will have so much more time for selfies..
