Hi guys, It has been a while since I did a blog post! I hope you are all well!
So, as you can probably guess, I am returning to work! I haven’t worked since I was heavily pregnant with Poppy. The main field I have worked in is Care work which is what I am returning too.
I have worked in a care home and also in the community. I am going to be doing community again because I can choose my own hours to fit around the kids (result!). I have found a wonderful company who have listened to my needs and have been very, very flexible. I am really, really excited to be going back…..
So why do I feel guilty?! Why do I feel so horrible for going out to earn money for them to have nice things? We have always struggled with money and I now feel i need to step up and bring in some bacon (mmmmmmm bacon). I shouldn’t feel guilty because I will be working between school hours on the day Douglas is at pre-school and Poppy is now in Year 1. So it’s only Amber I will be leaving at home, which I think is why I feel guilty.
Amber has been with me practically 24-7 since she was born and she gets upset if I take the rubbish downstairs! How on earth am I going to leave her?! Obviously she isn’t going to be left home alone, she will be with Daddy and even though she does like him (hehe) she is definitely a mummy’s girl!
I keep telling myself that I am doing this for the children. I need to tell myself this or I won’t go! Not because I don’t want to work, I don’t want to leave my babies. I need to do this because now they are getting older, they need more things. They all have birthday’s and Christmas coming up and I want to be able to spoil them rotten! We will be able to go bowling and eat breakfast with santa and I cannot wait!
So, if you are a SAHM like me thinking of returning to work…Go for it!
