After six years of being a stay at home mum, my husband and I have decided to switch roles and I am going back to work. It isn’t something I want to do, our youngest is only 18 months old but for various reasons it is what needs to happen. I cannot bear to think about certain aspects of my return to work, I am trying really hard to focus on some positive things. I will be setting a good example for my children that mum can work. I will be having adult interaction every day! I will have something other than my kids to talk about. I will be able to go to the toilet in peace. If I focus on the positives it is exciting rather than frightening, I have to think of all that we gain rather than what I will miss out on.
