Finding my feet
Once the decision had been made, I wasn’t worried about taking on the majority of the childcare. I wasn’t hugely career-minded and I didn’t have a problem with not being the breadwinner any more. Generally, I was happy at the thought of being able to spend more time at home.

The main issue for me was getting used to the routine. It wasn’t a complete shock to the system because I’d been involved in looking after the children before, butmel had done most of it. ollie was at preschool in the mornings, so it was important to make sure he was ready and dropped off on time.
