Claire’s jobshare sorted out

Elaine got the jobshare post, so Claire is going back in April, 3 days per week. It’s really good news – exactly what we wanted, once we accept we can’t afford for Claire to stay at home.
Claire called the nursery and discussed the details, but now she’s upset and i can really understand. It’s going to be really hard for her to leave Leo and go to work, and i don’t know how she’s going to feel when it really gets to it.
I feel sad too – knowing that my little boy won’t have his mummy all the time. Knowing we don’t have much choice doesn’t make the choice easier.
It’s hard for everyone, whether it’s full or part time, childminder or nanny. It’s easy to say it’ll be OK, but i don’t think Claire feels that.
