Working part time and leaving hubbie in the mantle I often wonder what my two precious bundles get up too, not that I should worry really, he has them off on all kinds of adventures and even cooking me up batches of brownies for my return (and other sweet treats!).
I feel like I miss out on so much quality family time though, it’s hard when they are growing up so fast and I spend a good chunk of the weekend away from them (and eldest spends lots of the week in school as it is!).
But sometimes you have to relinquish your mummy reigns and go off in to the wider world without them to try and help the finances. The only thing that keeps me going is seeing other children having tantrums and then I feel a little relief that I am having a break from dealing with public meltdowns. I can just share a look of understanding with the parent handling it, as they scrape their child off the floor and try and leave the supermarket with their dignity intact...
