‘We have just become really lucky…’

So, Marley goes to nursery for two days of the week and my mum will have him for one of them. I have just recently got a new job so my hours are like really, really good – 9 to 3. So, he goes to nursery 8 to 3.30 so we will sort him on a Monday, Tuesday. My mum will have him one day and sometimes she has him the night before so I don’t have to take him. If not, Jordan’s brother or Jordan’s mum and dad will have him on one day. So we have just become really lucky, if that makes sense. There’s quite a few people that could watch him. Jordan’s mother does work full time but Jordan’s brother doesn’t work full-time so sometimes he is flexible.
My mum only works part-time. She works a Monday and Tuesday, he’s in nursery Monday and Tuesday and she is always off on a Wednesday, Thursday. So if I do a Wednesday or a Thursday, my mum is cool to watch him, so it works well. It’s ended up that we are really lucky that we have got a lot of people around us that can help us out.
