So, what do you do all day?

I don’t know if this divide has happened to you, or if you have felt it happen around you but I saw this article a while ago on Cena’s blog and it really resonated with me, as did her corresponding post about it. Not in a harsh way but in a “Yeah, that’s it! That’s why I’m not racing for the phone the minute I have a minute! I’m not actually being a completely selfish and self-involved person, just a woman who is a Mum 24/7 and sometimes needs to take a breath”
Being a Mum is an awesome job but it really is a job – just a really good one you (mostly) choose to do! (and can I just say that getting up at 6am every day [6.30am on weekends!] has been the best decision and I can’t believe I am actually saying that!! I really am a better Mum for having this ‘me-time’)
Like Cena I’m not sharing this article to find validation or comfort or because I think being a Mum is the hardest job in the world. I love being a Mum and I am so grateful that I get to be at home as much as I am – wouldn’t change it for a second. I’m sharing it because, well, because I liked it and because it’s my blog so I’m allowed too :)

Have you been on either side of this “fence”?? Do you think this is harsh, unfair or right on the money?? This is one of those posts where I’m keen for some feedback and happy to ask you for it :)
