Times are changing and having a child shouldn’t mean the end of a career, infact it could mean the beginning of a new and exciting one.
Below is an infographic showing how times have changed. I was 30 when Emmy arrived, my Mum however had me at 21.
I was a Nanny prior to having my children, and I actually went back to work when Emmy was 12 weeks old. She was able to come with me so I had the perfect work/home balance – I would leave home with Emmy at 6.45am and return home with her at 7.30pm. This worked well for me as I could look after the two children while looking after Emmy too. I had a travel cot where she could sleep and she attended the kids clubs and school functions with us. The children I Nannied for loved having her around.
I continued working until she was around almost a year old and only left as the Mum I worked for gave up work.
What job do you have and how do you manage to get a happy work/home balance?
I have a wonderful home life/work balance as a Blogger and a Freelance writer.
