I applied for a high paying power job just to see if I could get it. Today I got the call that made my tummy curl, I got the job. Normally this would be a thrilling moment for most people.
But for me It isn’t. I am comfortable at home with my 6 month of baby and my 2 year old toddler. I enjoy them, I love motherhood more than anything imaginable. Yes I worked my behind off to become a Psychologist, yes its taken me 9 years. And then I had 2 babies and my priorities changed.
My husband is a night fill at a department store and casual so the money is welcome but as I bought this home cash we have no mortgage and living on one casual income and a mothers allowance actually whilst it isn’t what mot people like financially what about spiritually and holistically for myself and the children and family as a whole.
I breast feed the baby and would be away over 10 hours a day. 4 hours of that be driving!
And my 2 year old is just my world.
My theory always WAS why have kids if you don’t want to be home and be with them (not intending to offend any working mums at all).
