My husband sent me a voice recording of Emme-Mai reading her school book, it was 11 minutes long and I sat at work in the office, just listening to how amazing she sounded. It occured to me, like a huge lighting bolt to the head that my daughter’s spend more time at school and the childminders house, then they actually do at home!!! Now obvioisly the school thing is needed and I get that, but the girls get sent to a child minder so that we can work early mornings and late evenings. Sometimes my husband and I have to do the handover of the girls at work.
I remember when Ava-Leigh was a baby and me and her biological dad split up, sje was forever at nursery so that I could go to work. I missed so much of her younger life because I was at work. I know I am doing a good thing by being a working mum but sometimes I feel like I am putting more effort into the business I work for rather than being a parent!!
Does anybody else feel like this? How do you combat these feelings?
