[ MY WHY ]
I was sent this photo of my baby yesterday, and it brought me joy and a touch of sadness in one go. Joy because finally he is happy and contented enough to go off exploring in a new environment while with his carer. He’s been with her since November and has pretty much clung to her every day he’s been with her. So this is a YAY moment. Way to go my son!! But the mumma in me also had a touch of sadness, because I wasn’t the one there with him. That although he had made this huge leap, the fact he had to go through that without me because I’m at work, well yeah it made me sad.
I’m sure it’s something all working mums know.
I also know that I’m working to give our family opportunities we might not otherwise have. To ensure that we not only have the necessities in life, but we can have some of the “nice to haves” too. So the kids can have the quad bike or the biggest tramp, or the toy they really want, but really don’t need. So we can travel overseas at least once a year, because travel is the most wonderful form of education and experience in my book. And yes I know they don’t need all that stuff, but I want them to have it anyway.
But the trade off is a struggle sometimes, and I would love to be able to do both for my kids. Be the mum that is there with them as they grow and develop, as well as provide opportunities and experiences for them.
So that is my “WHY”. Why I am trying new things, and why I have started this journey here. Where it will take us I don’t know, but I know why!
