During my 4 months maternity leave, I constantly wondered if I would enjoy being a stay at home mummy (SAHM).
In that 6 months (4 months of maternity plus 2 months of summer holidays. Woo hoo!) that I was at home with my little darling, I did everything!
I cleaned, cooked (at least tried to), do the laundry, cared for our firstborn, socialised (barely because everybody else was at work) - you name it, I did it.
I'm not going to apologise for saying this but I actually enjoyed it.
Some people think of household chores as brainless activities.
But you CAN clean the dishes AND read Shakespeare, no? (Not that I did, though. Heh)
However, I believe the main reason why I fully enjoyed my short SAHM experience was because I was still receiving my paycheck.
Okay, I heard you.
Money isn't everything, you say?
Yeah, it isn't but what do I do when the bills start rolling in at the end of the month?
Money isn't everything but it is essential
But I am not one who likes to dwell on negativities so I had to find the silver lining at the end of the hurricane.
You can't change reality but you CAN definitely CHANGE your mindset.
Are you a SAHM, WAHM or a full-time working mother secretly wishing to be SAHM/WAHM (like me)?
I would love to hear your thoughts and experiences.
