    I am not sure??

    Childcare (at a push) could be arranged I am sure and the money would come in handy but I've never left James with anyone other than Daddy.

    Not sure what to do?

    My heart says I don't want to leave him yet, my head says its just for 3 days - that money would come in so handy!

    Maybe the short notice is a good thing, less time to worry about it beforehand! Only you can decide though.

    I point blank refused to do any KIT days despite my boss doing her best to persuade me.

    Its your decision hun, do whatever you feel happy with

    If you think the money would be handy then I'd go for it. It might be good for you to let James be looked after for a few days?
    I'm going in for KIT next week and I'm apprehensive about leaving Enid for that, but mines only for 3 hours to catch up! I do think it will be good for me though and it might make me realise that the world won't end if she isn't by my side.

    Good luck! Xx

    Could you compromise and do just one day?

    How strange they should ask you to do 3 days? Does this mean they have some task lined up for you already?

    I got rubbish things to do when I came in on my days, important things that had been neglected in my absence. Having said that, I really enjoyed the time off being mummy. And absence makes the heart grow fonder :)

    You could see this as 'practise' for when you're back at work properly? x

    My replacement is off this week as she has had a "surprise" - this is what my manager said in her VM but she didn't elaborate when I spoke to her so I am tempted to go in to work just to find out what is going on?

    I can only get someone to look after him on Thursday (Daddy needs to go Dr's so he is taking Thursday off, will go to the walk-in clinic and take James with him and work Saturday instead)

    I am excited actually, and the money will be handy!

    Do it, it will be good for you and the money will be really handy. I'd finished all my kit days by March and I'm now doing two days a week (one day work from home though). I miss J loads but OH always sends me a morning picture after breakfast, which is lovely and the smiles and arm flapping I get when I return kind of makes it worth leaving.

    I'd definitely go for it. Work is quite fun when it's just a few days. Plus it'll make the idea of going back less daunting.

    I am doing some too before I go back end of September. Only for the money though and to break myself back in gently. x
