So if you are following my blog since the start of the year you will know how excited I was to go back to work after being at home with the kids for almost 7 years.
I love my kids but I was never a natural stay at home mum, I love my independence always did.
I felt I lost a little bit of my spark being at home all day every day with the kids. I got lost in being Mum the bum wiper, snot cleaner, shoe put-er-on-er, drink getter, toilet trainer and general life preserver. I wanted just a little bit for me. Maybe that was selfish? My mother was all those things and a hell of a lot more and she never sought more. She had her lot and she lived with it. But from day one I knew I was more than just “Mum”.
Being a mum is the hardest job in the world
