These days aren't parental leave rights extended to a fairly generous
degree towards the father as well?
IIRC if the mother wants to return to work the father can take
parental leave with very similar conditions (of course, since I have
no real possibility of being in this situation in the near future I
may have mis-remembered it)

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and
remove all doubt.
