|We got into our first choice|
Let's just stop a minute and see what that means..... my baby, will be starting school in September. How on earth did that happen, it was only 5 minutes ago we were wearing afro bubble hair in the bath...
|When did this bubba grow up!|
My son has been in nursery since 6 months old. 3 full days and 2 days at Grandma's house. This was dropped down to 1 day at Grandma's and 4 full days and finally, 5 full days at nursery. By full days, I mean 8am until 5pm. This makes my heart ache and the reason why we really must have a full fun packed weekends.
I miss my kid!
So, after some thought, I approached work and with the new flexible working laws available I asked if I could change my hours from 8.30 - 4.45..... to 7am to 3pm.
This would enable me to at least pick my boy up at 3.15 every day and have a good couple of hours with him. I know he'll be older, he'll be 5 and I won't get the preschool and toddler years back, but I get my boy, I get some much needed and much wanted mummy and son time.
So whilst I'm losing my baby and gaining a school boy come September, I'm also getting back time with my boy, and that, which starts in June - is priceless.
