If you read my post ‘Nearing The End To A Year Off’ you will know I plan on returning back to work in January.
We have already started our search for childcare and we have decided on split care with my Mum and a Nursery. We feel this is the best choice as Scarlett is such a sociable baby and loves other children. If all goes to plan I will return to work 3 days a week – Scarlett will go to my Mum for 1 full day and then for the other 2 days do half a day at Nursery and half a day with my Mum.
Since January is fast approaching we have already viewed a Nursery just down the road from us. It seemed nice but we did view it on Friday – one of there quietest days. I want to view a few more and go back on a busy day before I make my final decision.
Will Scarlett be okay?!
Just the other day I had a total meltdown and convinced myself I couldn’t leave her!
Scarlett is such a lovely child but don’t get me wrong she can be a handful. She likes to pull hair, pick eyelashes (usually ends in a poke in the eye!) squeal at the top of her voice, scratch, blow raspberries (or just spit at you!) but she also needs a lot of attention and love.
I know they are all just what ifs. But I’m not sure if they are the what ifs I’m willing to risk.
Please tell me this is totally normal and I am doing the right thing!!
