When our kids become more and more independent, we Moms will have more time to ourselves.
Some moms start dressing up, putting on make-up and going for manicures or pedicures
Some moms start a small business.
Some moms take up a new skill e.g. blogging, dancing, flower arrangement, photography, sewing.
Some moms go back to school.
That’s right. I know of many moms whose secondary or university education were put on hold because they became pregnant.
Moms who took their unplanned pregnancies positively, put their studies on hold and focused their time and energy on their kids, GOOD FOR YOU!!!
Believe it or not, your kids love and appreciate you for first being a Mother and everything else next.
With so many educational instituations and programs available now, you can always go back to school.
In fact, one of my friends is planning to take an MBA while another *hopes* that she can pick up where she left off with the remaining exam papers for the ACCA.
Both of them joked about “rusty old brains” after years and years of breastfeeding, cooking and cleaning their kids. Another had to dig for hours in the store room before she unearthed her old notes and textbooks.
One thing’s for sure, if they had been managing the household, reading up on current issues, helping the kids with homework or helping the husband with paperwork, I believe that they will have no trouble hitting the books again.
Can we do it? YES, we can!!!
