You will be fine once you get to work. I was dreading it, I'd burst in to tears at the thought as I went back 4 days a week doing 36 hours but it worked out fine, I enjoyed the break and adult socialisation as well as LO loving nursery. It just makes the time i do spend with her more special.
I'm back too for the first time tomorrow, can't believe where the time has gone. Even though we've done nothing exciting today I keep thinking it's all going to change. I'm scared I'll not manage my work as I'm a teacher so need to do some at home (going to try not to). Good luck.
It gets much easier I promise. I went back to work a year ago doing 18.5 hours a week which was brilliant! But have since had to extend my hours to 30 hours . I truly believe that it helps lo grow and adapt to change. Hope your first day back went ok xxx
I am a teacher and went back for the last week of term before Christmas. I was beside myself, I spent weeks getting worked up over it and felt like my world was ending. Once I got back it really was fine. It was lovely to see people again and I honestly felt like I had never been away after the first couple of days! I work part time which helps a lot. I went through the same thing with my daughter so I thought I would be OK second time around, but the anticipation was as bad as ever.
Im already dreading it, and i dont go back until march.. I cant stop thinking about it but ive got 3 weeks holiday to take so im going to just take half days when i go back so I go back 'part time' for a few weeks to get me and Jack into the swing of it!
I know what you mean about adoption - it feels like we will never see them again but we will, they will still be there!
It start back tomorrow too after 13 months off! I am actually really looking forward to it because I know LO will enjoy time with his grandparents and the fantastic nursery he's going to. I also feel like I can be a better mummy by having the time to recharge my batteries so I can enjoy my time with LO more. I used to think SAHM were lazy but since having LO I realise it truly is the hardest job in the world and I need to go back to my desk job for some rest!
Can't wait for that first hot cuppa at my desk where I get to sit down and drink the whole thing while it's still hot. And to have an uninterrupted adult conversation. Good times.
