View Full Version : How best to give notice

I have a little one temp until may while mum goes to college,., she was an awful
screamer for the first couple of weeks and I nearly gave notice but one day she just stopped. Now she doesn't cry when mum leaves but a while later will start... She is
13 months and has never been minded out of home before (lives with mmum granny and Granads and mums younger siblings) she just isn't a happy child very rarely smiles and is a nightmare to get to sleep. To her credit mum is working on bedtime but naptime is crazy she cries between 10 minutes to an hour and then only sleeps 40 minutes. It isn't enough and she is wrecked but there is no routine for naps at home.

I have a new little one starting in January he is 11 months and I aam concerned now I won't cope as this one is so demanding ., she is teterm time only so won't be here at aall in January which means even if I can get her sorted now she will be hard work again in feb. she is only half days but it wwill mean I have four under four three mornings a week.

Mum is quite clingy and worries a lot but is lovely .. She is so relieved she isn't crying at drop off and I haven't said too much about how she is during the day because I am too, plus I feel it is my job to cope.

But my days are now really difficult and I think I will give notice to finish at
christmas but how? Not sure mum wwill be expecting it at this stage should I drop hints for a few days first?!!

It should be ok if you give plenty of notice - just say your circumstances are changing after Christmas and you need to let mum know nice and early so she has time to get organised.

Hth :D
