Sharing that she found herself very nervous dropping him off for the first time, these nerves were made more difficult to deal with as people on social media began to criticise her for it too.

She said; “I didn’t sleep last night. It’s such a strange, strange feeling because I’m so excited to be back, and I’m so nervous for Wolf starting creche.”

“I was shook by some of the messages that other mothers sent me. You know it was a difficult week for me, it is not easy putting your kid into creche, and it is very emotional and he is very young.”

Revealing how upset these messages made her she said; “It did really upset me, because I’m new to this and I am really learning. I’m a complete novice and I don’t know what I am doing and I’m figuring things out as I go and I have to come back to work.”
