Afternoon all, just wanted to see if anyone could share their experiences of working away when you've got little ones.
My son is now 2 and after maternity leave I chsnged my job to one with less stress, better working hours although it was a lot less pay/benefits. However, I was recently offered a better job which although has a lot of responsibility but the company are incredibly respectful of employees with families and work life balance. I accepted the job and it has so far been exactly as promised which I am pleased about.
However...in November I have to attend a residential training course for 5 nights (mon-fri) which means leaving my little boy 😢. I know Daddy and Nanny will do an excellent job caring for him and it's only a one off but I can't bear to think of him asking for me and I'm not there!!
Anyone had any similar experiences? How did you get on?
