I knew it wasn't going to be easy.. so I was mentally prepared but my goodness looking after their every needs from 8am to 5pm and keeping them amused was full-on ... and my daughter does it day after day without ever complaining.. So I treated the job like any other job... my daughter had left me written instructions on feeding times and had left the food prepared so all I had to do was keep them safe and happy.. they were kind to me and somehow I got through the day okay and I was quite proud of myself.. our treat was to go shopping in Woking. It was funny walking along with all the mums pushing babies in push chairs.. Overall I think I coped reasonably well and I'm sure I'll get better at it. I also knew that my daughter needed to go back and do something intellectually stimulating and interact with other adults. She came home very happy and I knew I had done something that had made her life better. She has not had a break since they were born 10 weeks premature in May and I knew she saw going back to work as a break. Not surprisingly I fell asleep as soon as I sat down to watch TV!!
