    lol I think, actually I know I'd do the same. - 3 hrs before her mum returns (fingers crossed there's no traffic on her way here lol)

    LOL!! My kids are 20, 13, 10, 3 (well they will be by the summer) and 4 months, so I work full time for a rest!! Ha!

    I'm on mat leave at the moment, but I had forgotten how stressful days with a toddler and baby can be - the baby's usually good as gold, but my 3 year old is 'full of character' shall we say!! I look forward to the days that he goes to nursery and it's just me and the baby.

    I can honestly say though that it will be a lot easier for you when it's your own baby as you will know their routines and it won't be as hard work - honest! Don't let it put you off!! :)
