My part time, paid job that is. No matter how many times I try to resign from being a Mum, it keeps falling on deaf ears so I guess I'm stuck with that job.
After a lot of deliberation and talks with my husband, I finally did it today. I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I thought I could have it all. Tidy, organised house; happy, content children; happy, content husband and a part time evening job that fit in with my very hectic schedule that gave us a bit of spending money for those little luxuries in life. Ummmm? No. The house has turned into a shambles, my 6 year old daughter is having hormonal issues, the children are lacking routine because I'm so damn busy trying to get organised to rush out the door at 5:30pm and then I'm too tired the following day to even do the basics around the house.
I really hand it to people who do paid work outside the home. I don't feel any less like a super woman because I couldn't do it. I just feel like I'll be able to channel all my energy back into the things I love doing the most and that's looking after my home and family, even though I don't get paid for it or get any thanks for it.
