3 gone, 2 to go

I realised earlier that in exactly two months' time I'll be going back to work.

That is a seriously scary thought because it means I've been on maternity leave for 3 months!!!

Will have to write a proper post because I have such a lot to say about this work thing :)


  1. I'm amazed at how long leave is in what seems like every other country BUT the U.S.! I enjoyed my 8 weeks thanks to a c-section, otherwise it would have been 6! Six measly weeks! Jeeze! You're so luck to have been home so long!

  2. 8 weeks :O 6 weeks!!! :O Crikey. I'm pleased I live in little old New Zealand - but in saying that, we get jealous of the Scandie countries and their generous provisions which are even better than ours. I can't imagine going back to work yet and our baby girl is just over 10 weeks - they're just so little and precious.

  3. I read in Switzerland they get 6 months per, if Dad wants to stay home for 1/2 of the year, he can. 8 weeks isn't enough...anywhere!

  4. Yes, we can do that here in NZ too :) i.e. split the 12 months between parents.


Thank you so much for leaving a comment and filling my love tank. I appreciate it!
