So this week we visited another nursery, which was totally different to that previous which had left me feeling sick and panicked. This time, I was reassured by the lovely nursery staff and the gorgeous new facilities onsite.
We have decided that Jack will go to nursery part-time whilst I go back to work, I know that he will be fine and that I will be an emotional wreck but we need the money. There is no-way that I shall be returning full-time until he is a little older, at that I draw the line.
Don’t get me wrong, I still feel totally gutted that the time has come for Jack to go to nursery because to me, a baby should be taken care of by his mum or dad.
I’m just pleased we have found somewhere that we all like. Jack was quick to explore and even opened up for cuddles with the Nursery Manager. He didn’t seem fazed at all which made me feel loads better.
Its funny, you always think that your baby will stay just that forever, but he is already 10months old and he already has his own little character. I’m pretty sure that he will thrive amongst his new friends but I’ll miss his cuddles for sure. Although, I know that our time apart will make me appreciate the time we share together much more and I’ll be sure to go out of my way to enjoy and make the most of every moment we are together.
We have three sessions arranged so that we can attend with Jack whilst he gets settled in and Trevor has arranged to stay at home with Jack for the first week that I return to work so that he gets used to not having me around all day.
I guess only time will tell…
