Another week of work and stay at home is coming to an end as we finish up with the weekend. We were busier this week as a number of things came through for us to do at work. So we had to focus more and couldn’t spend as much time with the baby and each other during the day. It has also become clear that my job in an advisory function within the bank is more flexible than my wife’s job in a BAU/project function. She is generally on a lot more calls and has a heavier workload than me on most days.

As my wife is the higher earning spouse, it makes sense to prioritise her work matters over mine. Since she’s the one with tighter weekly deliverables and more demanding stakeholders. I will usually schedule my calls around hers and spend more time on the baby and household
