While juggling multiple roles, don’t forget you are important too. Make yourself a priority because no one else will with #KhayaalRakhna
On another instance in the same period I had a chance to visit a scientific group in a University in another country. This time, I looked for a day care and I was lucky to find a place in the University day care. This arrangement was for 7 days, the language was different than the 2 languages that my daughter could speak at that point, the day carer assured that they have previously handled such situation. First day we both were quite nervous, but then it went actually very well. My host being a female professor with two kids understood the whole situation and was very helpful. My daughter did very well and even managed to learn some dutch and make some friends. On her last day in the day care, she got farewell cards and commented that she would like to come for a visit again! My work went well and we both returned to our nest happily.
After all, a struggle which does not kill you makes you stronger!
So all in all, as a working mother, till now, I have enjoyed most part of the work tours. Each tour needed more of preparation but the effort goes in it worth the result.
