Evening all, I am currently 12 weeks pregnant with baby number 2 and during this crazy time I have a lot of time to reflect on what I would like to do when I return to work next summer. My little boy will be ready to start pre-school in the September and I would like to be around for him as much as possible without him always being in pre-post child care. Ideally I would like to negotiate working 5 days a week but only up until lunchtime (ideally finishing at 2pm on all 5 days). Has anyone successfully managed to negotiate similar conditions post-maternity or am I living in a dream world? All suggestions and experiences welcome!
