    Today was the day my OH went back to work, he's been such a big help whilst he's been off so I was a bit worried how I would cope with the kids, the answer - better than I thought, mainly because Lucas has a morning, lunchtime and afternoon nap so I used that time to play with Lilly and get on with whatever needed doing.

    Poor OH was heartbroken leaving Lilly this morning though, she's been like his little shadow for the last 3 weeks and got a bit upset at her dad leaving without her but after an hour or so she forgot what she was upset at and we played in her ball pit and had lunch and she was fine- then he came home and she was soooooo happy.

    OH wishes he could stay at home permanantly, so have told him to come up with a money making business he could run from home :rofl:

    its such a shame too because my OH only took 1 week paternity leave, 2 weeks annual leave.

    We literally couldn't afford for him to take the 2 weeks off that he's allowd because his pay drops so dramatically :(
