I have a 4 yr old son with XH. DH and I are having a baby in 6 weeks.
I have a slight concern as to what will happen after my maternity leave. My son goes to daycare in our town (his dad lives 10 miles away and comes through our town to go to work so dropping/picking him up at daycare is never an issue). When my maternity leave is over, my son and the new baby will go to daycare at the same place.
My concern is how my son will act when we pick LO up from daycare on his dad's week. I know he is going to want to come home with us (we are both done early and pick him up by 4 whereas his dad doesn't pick him up until 5:30. I dont want him to feel left out and like we don't want him to come home with us for that 1-1.5 hours but in reality, its up to his dad. Sometimes my XH has no issues with us getting the 4-year-old from daycare on his weeks and othertimes he does.
Does anyone have any advice on this? Should I wait and see how it goes once LO and my son are in daycare together? Should I approach the XH about this now? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
