Venting out..can you relate... how have you managed it?
My son is 7 months old and prior to having a baby, I was a career oriented woman always wanting to learn new things and grow in my career. I am a contractor and didn't have any paid mat leave except for the Centrelink payment. I had to go back to work 6months pp.
The savings we had before having the baby was budgeted to last us for at least a year but we had many unexpected expenses which made me go back to work and not extend my leave.
After having the baby, I no longer feel like working. The career fire has gone down and I want to spend time with my baby.
In addition to that we started him at a childcare which was very difficult to get a spot at but only to know the baby is constantly getting sick. We have been in emergency 3 times of the 2 weeks he's attended the childcare. The hygiene is very poor at childcare and I don't want my baby to go through this.
There's no way out of this trap of work, finances, childcare and house chores. I'm fed up and it's been too much mentally and physically in the last two weeks 😟
