I’ve done it. I’ve made the decision. And, oh, it’s a weight off. I’ve been struggling for the last 8 months on how best to figure the work/baby balance. Should I be more of a stay at home mum? Should I work full time and organise childcare? Is it best for him to be with me, or with other children? If I’m a mum at home, how am I going to feel without those enquiries. If I’m working full time, how am I going to feel about Jesse being away? It’s a pull-and-tear situation.
Last night I sat and spoke with Gary about it for a long while. From now, until Jesse goes to school, I’ll be aiming to shoot 25 weddings a year at my current price and no less. I’ll have every Wednesday to work while he has a Dadda play day. I’ll drop in and out of the office in the evenings/during nap times for the rest of the week. The other days, I’ll be with J. I have a few ideas of things we can do lined up, and if you have any ideas of things to do with little ones or have been in a similar position, drop me a comment :)
