I am going to be a father for the first time in March. We are living in France, so, thanks to the welfare state, my wife will not be returning to work until September.
I am willing to set a good example for my kid, and take my share, so I will also stop working for 6 months, using some of my vacation I did not use the previous years, in anticipation of this.
The thing is that I don't have enough 'credit' to stop working all 6 months, so I will stop for 3 months, and work 3 days a week for 3 months.
The big question is: When will I be more useful at home? (Or, should I start by working a bit and then completely stop, or the other way around)
Things are sorted out at work, and they don't mind either way, but my boss would like to know soon in order to make plans for next year.
