On the 1st of July, I have to return to work full time! My girls will be 11 months old and they will e going into childcare. I am in two minds about it, on one hand, I can’t wait to go back to work and have some “adult” time, but on the other hand, I don’t want to be away from my girls! I think its worse because they are going into care, not with a grandparent or anything. I feel like I really need a break from them sometimes, but I know, after my first day back I will want to quit and be home with my girls! I know everyone goes through this, and it will get easier, but I am starting to freak out! I guess I just need some positive reinforcement from others that have been in this situation, all of my friends have gone back to work part time and have their kids being looked after by family members, unfortunately I don’t have that luxury, which is why I am feeling a bit anxious over the whole thing, they will have each other so I know they won’t be alone, but still I worry about them. Plus I don’t know how I am going to cope without them around me all day!
