  1. This made me chuckle. One of my good friends is returning back to work tomorrow after her Maternity leave and although she is sad to be leaving her baby she is happy to go back to work for a rest!! hahaha

  2. Loved reading this. I don’t think some people realise what we do all day. It’s tough being a mum because it’s not just about your child it’s everything else to. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Ha loved this, I did wonder what you SAHM did all day πŸ˜‰ In all honesty though, I dont think people do realise or appreciate that it isnt a case of watching Jeremy Kyle and faffing x

  4. haha this is so true! it is a pet peeve of mine when people act like i do nothing all day (aside from the fact I work and volunteer from home as well as all of these things) but apparently none of this stuff counts!

  5. Hahaha! I love this! I have recently gone onto maternity leave and my colleagues have said to me, “Oh, you’ll enjoy your year off!”, “Enjoy your year’s holiday!” and “How nice it must be to be able to take a year out to rest”. Oh, how wrong they all are…

  6. If only we had all of those people around to help! The amount of people who think I just sit and home and do nothing all day just because I’m a stay at home mum is remarkable!!! Gets me so angry!


  7. Gosh – and I am a mum to four! Add Uni, college, GCSE’s and teen angst into the mix for me – I deserve a medal!! Seriously, I would not change a thing. Great post, thank you. Kaz x

  8. Life isn’t easy when you have children and although the demands change as they get older, children still take over your life and you end up not stopping all day
