    Anyone else feel this? My wee man goes in two mornings a week to give me a break as we're far from any support and hubby is away with work a lot. Wee man is supposed to start three days a week this coming week as I'm soon starting my part-time PhD.

    Problem is he keeps getting bugs and it breaks my heart to see him unwell. Today he is just so tired and just wants to cuddle (very unlike him as he's usually far too busy for cuddles LOL).

    My conscience is killing me about putting him in more - or at all! I know the PhD is a life long dream and could result in a great job when kids are of school age but can I justify it?

    Is there any way to effectively work part-time as a full-time mum?

    The first few months of nursery are tough but look at it this way, in the long run lo will be better for it as he will develop a good immune system before he starts school. Its rubbish but at this time of year all nurseries will be germ breeding grounds with snotty noses a plenty. Snot season usually dries up around march!!
