Since returning to work full-time, I must admit it is really stressful. My team is under staffed at the moment and it is a very busy period. I had not realised how much the company had expanded while I was away. Unfortunately with the expansion, current processes and staffing pose an issue. In addition to that, my little boy still wakes up at least once every night.
But the main heartache I have is that I miss my boy so much. He is at such a fun age now where he can talk and interact and do silly things. He is also becoming helpful by helping me throw things in the bin or pass me the tissues when I am too lazy to get up. Isaac happily does these things for me. Such a good boy!
So why work full-time or work at all? Unfortunately at this stage we need the finances to support our housing projects and our ageing parents who have intentions of moving to Melbourne. Whilst we have the benefit of full-time employment in such a fluid economy, best to make full use of it!
I hope one day I can stay home more or be closer to home.
For now, I shall press on and not give up.
