I can’t do it. I am not SuperMom.
I can’t go to the market almost every morning, instruct the helper what to cook and then rush off to work.
When I am home in the evening, I’m so exhausted from the longgggggg commute to and from work, not to mention the 5-6 flights of stairs I need to climb up and down the office that I get really cranky (read: B.I.T.C.H.Y) with my kids.
And that’s wrong because they are MY kids.
I should enjoy having them run to me with their 101 comments or questions, play with them and also teaching them all that I know.
It breaks my heart that I spend the whole day smiling, listening to and teaching 300+ kids but I can’t do that with my own kids because I am tired.
So…we have decided that it’s time for me to be a stay-at-home Mom again.
Will I be writing more ranting posts about being a housewife? (Remember this one?)
No, I won’t because the kids are bigger now – I can teach them, I can take them out, I can TALK to them. Besides, one will be going to the kindergarten soon instead of being the TV addict she is now
While I’m happy to be at home with the kids again, I’m also finding it hard to do without a monthly salary. Nothing like being a working Mom, you know?
I will definitely look into:
a) cutting back our expenses i.e. the helper???
b) a part-time job – any leads will be most appreciated!
c) blogging full-time or an alternative source of income
Here’s to a wonderful new beginning. Wish me luck!!!
