    Back to fucking work today after getting to spend nearly two weeks off over the festive period and spending all that time with our little 9 month old girl.
    Was the happiest I think I've ever been!

    A guy I know in Sweden who had a kid a couple of months before us, his wife has just finished her maternity leave and he's about to start his 8 month paternity leave. Dads have got a great gig over there.

    Mighty fucking jealous!
    I'd kill for that precious time with our wee girl to see her develop into a walking talking toddler.

    • Try to spend all the time you can with her, without losing your job, obviously ;)OBBTKN
    • I'd happily be a stay-at-home dad. The joy of children is much better than the grief of clients! ;)microkorg

    • I feel like that's the way it should be - spending time with your little one as much as you wantSunSunSun_

    • Work life balance is one of the main reasons I stay at my job. Able to feed my kids breakfast and usually make it home before they sleep.dirtydesign
    • Depending when she gets up I usually have a couple of hours with her in the morning before going to work ...microkorg
