Happy Mothers Day to all the mums reading this.
I have three children. Love them all to bits. And I often think how, when expecting a baby for the first time you have no idea how that little person so completely changes your life. Once he or she is born life is never the same again.
Mine are all grown up now.
I remember when they were just babies the pressure I felt on me to go back to work when the last thing I wanted was to leave my baby.
I keep hearing of couples paying out for childcare so both parents can work and I think what's the point of mums working if all or nearly all they earn gets paid to someone else for caring for the children?
I remember thinking that if the government paid me to stay at home with my children, to do the best job I could to bring up good individuals for the next generation instead of putting me under pressure to leave them to go out to work the country would be a happier place.
However that pressure to earn made me make things to sell. I could make and look after the children, making more when they were asleep. In theory working from home around the children and their needs seems a good compromise. But also getting a cash incentive from the government to be at home would be even better!
I'm getting down from my soap box now. But as a Mothers Day present could I ask you to comment today? I know you don't usually comment but it's easy just click Comments under this post and write. I would love to hear from you. Enjoy your Sunday.
