For school and pre-school to start in August. Buddy hasn't been a problem this summer, but Sissy is obviously VERY bored. She needs something to distract her for part of the day.
I'll be able to attend to my housework duties at least part time. I plan on going back to my super organized way of life that I haven't had since after my parents passed away and before Sissy was born.
There has been a 6 year gap in "normal" around here and I'm ready to move on.
We had some annoying friends who felt like I should have a job outside the home. They had assorted "au pairs" to tend to their children, even though the husband could have stayed home with those children. Every time we chatted with them, the husband would ask, "When are you going back to work?" Hello? I do work. I don't get paid.
But, I gave birth to these two children and they are my responsibility. My mom was a stay at home mom my entire life and I plan on following in her footsteps.
I know many families can't afford to have one parent at home and certainly, a single parent can't stay at home. I get that. Even WE struggle with bills, etc. But, I do part time work from home when it comes my way. And, it generally comes my way when we need it most, so it's all good. :-)
Sorry for the tangent...Who knows where it came from? That's how my feeble brain works sometimes. :-)
