Let’s talk about work baby…
I had my mind set on never EVER going back to work ever again. I thought I’d paid my dues to the working world and I could just stay at home forever with Ada. Well…. a strange turn up for the books is I kinda wanna work again! Say what?!?!
A little bit of adult conversation along side parenthood would be the absolute dream 🙌🏻
However, what no one told me was how bloody expensive childcare is. Actually that’s a lie it’s all everyone told me I just didn’t listen 🙄 If only I got paid that much for being a stay at home Mum hey?? 🤷🏼♀️
I don’t know how everyone else deals/dealt with the the idea of returning to work but it’s taken me this long to realise I think I need to for my own sanity, it’s such a catch 22. Ada was copying me all day today cleaning, we did a bit of exercise and practising the word “duck” and I thought “how can I not be here 24/7 with you?” But then I remembered I’m going on about 85 abroad hen dos this year and I ain’t got no dollar y’all!!!!
Saying that the financial side for me isn’t the most important thing. I just need a little adult interaction and to talk about something other than nap time and salt content of foods (although I didn’t realise how much salt was in a lot of foods soooo thanks to my bestie for the heads up on that 😂) BUT the extra money won’t go a miss on a cheeky trip to Zara && I can get my parcels delivered to work rather than home and Jamie won’t ever have to know. 😂🤦🏼♀️ (this is for another blog, but I’m not actually buying anything new until i’ve worn everything in my wardrobe at least once 😳)
I haven’t even brought up the thought of dropping my little pickle off at nursery with her bag and saying goodbye for the day. I’m not sure my heart would hack it 😫 it’s so tough isn’t it?! I’m being awfully dramatic I know, and I know she’ll absolutely bloody love destroying a brand new environment but it’s tough.
What will be will be huh? I’ll keep you posted if & when the transition to work happens 😬 Wish me luck.
Thanks for reading.
