I think leaving dd in full time daycare is best option. If you want you can pick her up little early. Everyday cook only once every evening after dh comes home. pack lunch in fridge previous day so dh doesn't need to come home. that way you will get whole day for your office work and further job hunting etc. I know many indian husbands want to save daycare money, cleaning lady money. Wife is always taken for granted. Wife's career is secondary not important for them. Now you have to put your foot down and tell dh to pay all household expenses bill and you will pay daycare from your salary. I have gone through all this and it was toughest time of my life. I know one of my friend used to work in hospital (she was nurse) in night shift. She used to take care of small kids whole day with cleaning, cooking, feeding kids everything. After husband used to come home she used to go to hospital work every night and come home in morning, then again work at home......what kind of life is that? When you are happy and relaxed with your life then only you can give quality time to your family right? Husbands don't understand it.
