Today I have the pleasure of guest posting over at Domestic Goddesque. Kelly, the blog's author, has very kindly been featuring a number of bloggers on her blog this week and today is my turn.
My post, Working parent, better mother? is asking whether or not I might actually be a better mum now that I'm back at work. Before you head on over there, I want to be really clear about a couple of things:
- My post is not about whether working mums are better than stay at home mums or vice versa.
- It is not about whether working mums appreciate their children more than stay at home mums or vice versa.
No, my post is about me. Just me. I'm asking if I - and I alone - might be better as a working mum rather than a stay at home one. It's a desperate question really - I'd love to be at home with the children all day every day but there are (mostly financial) reasons why I can't so I'm trying to find some sort of positive angle to having to go back to work full-time.
Now we've got that straight I'd love for you to head over to see Domestic Goddesque, give my post a read and tell me what you think.
