Shock, horror, i had choices, i was born in 1975, i went to private school, i spent 6 years at Uni, a career in the oil industry, the world was at my feet . . . yet i happily chose being a young mother & housewife above all. Why do people have so much trouble understanding why i'd do that??
I have NEVER looked after myself better!! Since the boy started preschool in late 2006 - i started moving from stay at home mother to housewife, with delicious lunches, a movie here & there, morning tea with friends & grown up shopping. I don't waste my 30 hours a week child free time grocery shopping, cooking or cleaning - we can suffer that together & i mainly use a treadmill at home for exercise (Canberra weather can turn on you) & check homework or call out spelling from there.
So who on earth would poo poo this life choice, whether you have kind of fallen into or just happy to be there as planned?? When are we all just going to say "each to their own" & stop insulting everyone on what they do with their days?? We might be poor, but i'm so happy & relaxed. Love Posie
