Mom blogger sounds off on the worst things to say to a working woman with kids.
I might or I might not. It’s really none of anyone’s business. It is not a tossup of job v kids. I do what I have to for the benefit of my family- not all of us have a choice.
The dark winter 6am starts to get myself ready before the kids rise are so tough! Packing my children into the car bleary eyed and exhausted is no fun, but, as I said above, I do what I have - not all of us have a choice.
Another classic from an ill-informed person. Someone else isn’t raising them, they help with their care.
So apparently kids don’t misbehave when their mothers are at home? Well that’s funny as even over the school holidays kids are still are bold at times and get into trouble! No child is perfect no matter the circumstances at home.
I would love to go to work only a couple of days a week, however my job needs me full time and working part time would not be beneficial financially to us! I have already thought things through, and weighed it all up time and time again, believe me!
If I had the spare hours I would but I can’t fit everything in. I will volunteer when there is a bag pack for example, but I’m afraid that is the best I can offer at this time.
This really annoys me. Nearly all activities after school occur at this time. I know classes are on early for younger kids as they get tired, but as a working Mum I can’t get my child to these classes at that time. This leads to a disgruntled child and agitated parent. More classes after 6pm would be super.
Cut back on what, like eating or electricity? I’m hardly living a charmed lifestyle, if only? My idea of a treat is a Chinese takeaway on a Friday night and Monopoly with the kids!
No neither do I, but I have to. I am constantly battling piles of washing, cleaning/tidying the house and going through homework all after a ten hour day working and commuting. If I wasn’t as organised as I have to be, I think we’d all be eating micro-chips! I am literally chasing my tail on a daily basis, but guess what?
