I feel things are too much too. I am always trying to remind myself to make the most of time with LO and my parents. I hope things work out with your dad. I remember how upset I was when my dad was diagnosed with cancer. He has been in remission for many years now. I don't know what the answer is - I have just requested a move to 0.8 as I just feel I can't really do it all at the moment and I'd rather spend time with LO. People don't understand the commitments of a teacher - not actually that compatible with being a mum too.
