Back to work today

Ben was awake a couple of times last night with snuffles and took a full feed at 4 a.m. But went back down till 7am. I got up at 6am, nearly skidded in the kitchen on cat poo and then got ready. I got him sorted when he woke up and left at 7.45am.

When I got him out the car at nursery I had a bit of a wobble but made myself take a deep breath and be happy Mummy.

The lady at the nursery who took him was so lovely and telling me how he was so gorgeous and lovely. He was not fazed one bit – all excited about seeing the other children.

Work was really fine, just spending this week catching up with reading and sorting out my diary.

So I was able to go collect him at 3pm and come home. When I went up to get him he was laughing and chatting to one of the girls when I walked in – so obviously not too disturbed.

The staff are brilliant, being told how sociable and gorgeous he is really make me feel good about myself and the job I have done so far and just makes me feel better leaving him if he is ok with him.

He also ate a whole weetabix this morning there, and apparently wanted more, then had pasta and white sauce for lunch so nothing wrong with his eating there either.

So actually feeling quite positive about everything, but sure we’ll see when I am actually doing proper work and stressed



I finally removed my head from the sand this week and found out when my 6 months is up of maternity leave

I phoned a nursery that was recommended and is close by to see about a place for Ben starting in July full time and they have one space and suggested going to have a look next week.
