When my DD announced her surprise pregnancy, after discussing with my DH I decided to give up work and become full time childcare for her. We agreed I would never have this chance again, and as my daughter is a shift worker, it helped her too.
Now my DGD is off to school in September. I'm so pleased that she is starting this new phase in her life and can make friends and enjoy lessons.
Of course that means I can go back to work. My state pension doesn't start for another 9 years so the salary will be welcome.
I'm an office worker so may be able to work from home, so could still help out with school holidays etc.
I'm redoing my CV, but may even try something completely different.
Have any of you GNs been in this situation?
Is it hard to get back into the full time swing?
