So after many sleepless nights, I have decided to go for the job. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you can read about my motherhood / career struggles here. I was very torn between whether to apply for this role or continue my current role part time, leaving me more time at home with my daughter. However, this position doesn’t come up very often and I’d probably kick myself if I didn’t go for it.
So for the next week, I’ll probably be a little preoccupied preparing for the interview. I always say this but I’ll probably continue blogging anyway since I enjoy it so much! Haha! It’s hard work being a working mum! If I do get this job, I am going to be one very busy mama. Full time in a management role, a blog I love running, a mother to my daughter and a wife.
The chores at home are already piling up and if I’m in a management role, it’ll only get worse. The nursery has a huge pile of washed clothes that are ready to be folded or ironed. My hubby is usually pretty laid back and even he’s started complaining about it. He is currently cleaning the whole house like a mad man. I have an awesome hubby. The chores may be piling up at home, but the main thing is everyone’s happy and healthy, there’s food on the table and the bills are paid.
The first step is always the hardest – applying for the position. Then I’ll stress about whether or not to take the role afterwards. It took me so long to get to this decision. I’m racked with guilt because I feel like I’m choosing my career over being a mum. But I promise her that I’ll be home on time everyday and won’t work on weekends. Weekends are for family time.
