I don’t want to go back to work.
There. I’ve said it. Now feminists in their graves can roll around, or come back as zombies to eat my brain.
I never thought I’d be the type of person who wouldn’t want to go back to full time work, but apparently I am.
Having a child changes a lot of things. A lot of unexpected things.
If I can keep doing what I’m doing right now, I’d be a happy woman. Working from home allows me the freedom to cover the things that need to be covered while hubby does full time work.
Because let’s face it, aside from kids activities/needs, there are other things that need attention too – groceries, laundry, ironing, tidying up the house, doctor’s appointments. The list goes on and on.
Getting these things out of the way during the week means our weekends are free for family and friends stuff.
I did try doing the full time work for about two months. I didn’t like it.
I’ve spoken with other mothers who feel the same way as I do. It feels good to know I’m not the only one who feels like this, because there was a point when I thought wanting this home life thing makes me lazy. But then I realised the amount of stuff I have to do while working from home is so far from the definition of lazy. I think it borders to superhuman, really.
So, here’s hoping I get to keep doing what I’m doing right now. Because I really, really do love it.
