..... I have started my Monday's off leading up to ML in a few weeks time.
So I am home all day.... But still took Tobi to the nursery!
He just totally broke down and was crying his heart out (although this is nothing new!)I know he will be fine within minutes if not seconds! But, part of thinks he should be here with me! Even though I know he LOVES nursery and gets sooooo much out of it!
I work and so Aymen goes to nursery 2 afternoons a week. Sometimes i have some time off on one of the days im meant to work, so initially would have Aymen home with me as nursery wasnt needed.
However over the last couple of occassions, DH has been dropping him off at nursery and ive been at home alone, caught up with household stuff, had a cuppa tea and enjoyed some JK instead
I dont feel guilty anymore, Aymen loves nursery and he gets so much from it and it gives me a bit of a break too.
Don't feel guilty! Earl continued at the CM until last week (Easter Holidays) despite the fact I've been off since the 12th. I got a few afternoons to just relax and do some sorting out without him getting bored or under my feet, and he really enjoyed it there. He has asked to go back (would normally be there on a Monday) so I actually feel guilty that he hasn't gone back rather than him being there. Soon you'll have 2, so enjoy the time to yourself while you can
i know how you feel. bella goes to the cm one afternoon a week for 4.5 hours & i miss her like crazy & feel that i should be looking after her. maybe i should be. but she gets a lot out of being centre of attention when she's there, while she's always having to share my attention with lauren when she's with me, & she loves it there.
i am planning on stopping in a few weeks though, simply because i feel guilty for "packing her off" so to speak.
but personally, i don't see there's a problem at all with it, i'm just a hypocrite when it comes to judging myself in the same way
Don't feel guilty. Make the most of the chance to rest and relax before the baby comes.
Tom was at nursery today when I was at home as I'm a teacher and off for the next 2 weeks. He has 5 days at nursery while I'm off and I'm loving having the chance to sort the garden and house out without him helping and then have some down time too. He loves it at nursery and gets so excited about going that I don't ever feel guilty about him being there instead of at home.
Oh... And I feel guilty no matter what I do. I feel guilty when I keep her at home because she LOVES child care because they do sooo many cool things and she has friends to play with. She ends up grabbing her hat, jacket and shoes and tries to get me to take her. Lol
Thennnnn I feel guilty when she is there and miss her like crazy... So no matter what I never win. Lol
Oooh i do this all the time - infact i book a holiday DAY once every few months to have a day to myself! Megan goes to nursery and i get up late, eat breakfast in peace and induldge in rubbishy day time TV and a good magazine!! Dont feel guilty at all - we all need some alone time Xx
