I know we had some ladies on here going back to work.

When is everyone due back? I know that I am a lucky duck and have until March off at the moment, I am able to extend it (my position is secured until June) but I doubt I will, honestly I am already itching to go back (on reduced hours though, I am going to be dropping down to part time).

I'm on mat leave until end of June and I have about 5 weeks of accumulated vacation days that I can use to extend it to early August. It'll depend when a daycare spot is available for Marcos because the waiting lists here are ridiculously long (like 15-18 months long). I put him on waiting lists during my 2nd trimester just to be sure.

I think Oct 7 is my return date. Since I telework I'm going to try to keep him home for a while with me while I work, as long as he naps fairly reliably so I can get my stuff done.

i officially go back september 9. BUT I have a new job and have been going in for meetings and prepping for a presentation to special ed faculty. (and I have been doing this for free - that's ok though bc its totally different from what I was doing before so I am trying to get the feel for the new position and whole new facility)

Been doing some half days and missing my LO terribly

I definitely could not go back already if it meant being away from her. I made it clear that she will be with me at any portrait sessions for the time being.

I've told DH that if we have another it's his turn to take the extended parental leave (seeing as ours is paid by the government and it can be either parent who takes it, as long as it isn't both) because there is no chance in hell that I am staying at home for longer than 6 weeks again.

Back Sept 9, but only going back for 20hrs/week. Lucky my boss is so flexible! It allows my SO and I to switch off working and not have to do any day care.
