Life is sooo good when I am at work.I love it.I love the normalcy of a regular day when I drop Bunny at school/daycare and I go to work,come back make dinner and we all eat and sleep.
Lst week week was horrible in the family. S had major back pain and could not even turn. Poor guy suffered for a week. And after some acupressure treatment by a friend and 3 chiro sessions later, he is much better today
And the last 4 days, Bunny is sick with a high fever. The fever would subside when we give him Ibuprofen and he would be fine for 8 hours…as soon as the medicine would wear off, it would be back again. L
The doctor said, it’s a virus and did not give him any medication.
And oh..the unbelievable cough..amazing how much phlegm that a 4 year old could have..unbeleivable .
So needless to say, the 3 days keeping him at home was a challenge. We tried legos, some indoor activities, some TV time (well loottt of TV time), I downloaded some new apps….but..it is tough to make a 4 year old stay home all the time.But I am glad we did. He is much better today and sent him to daycare.
I sometimes wonder how do all the stay at home Moms entertain young kids?
I mean we can only have so many play dates, and it wouldn’t be everyday. And there is still house work, cooking involved. I really really think, the toughest job is being at home to take care of kids. Its very enjoyable..but very tough. I sometimes wonder if living in a place like where I live makes it even harder. We hardly see people on the sidewalks except for Sumemr. Winters are horrible..absolutely dark by 4 PM.I somehow love the rustling and bustling of Singapore and India.
I have begun to realize that I am meant to not be a stay at home Mom. Everytime I stay home (and S always happens to be super busy at work during that time) I go crazy. I get depressed of not seeing any people. I see the empty lawn, the gloomy weather and I get sad. I think about the fun things we can do but somehow it does not cheer me up. I think of all gloomy thoughts.
Bunny being sick does not help either.
I don’t know if its tough just because there is no family closeby.
Or if it is tough for people with family closeby as well?
When he gets sick, I come soo close to quitting my job..but then after 3 days at home I realize I cannot be at home full time. Its just not a happy situation for me.
So sigh..its a circle, I should just be content that I am working and not worry about him going to daycare.
But the last 4 years, I have been thinking and re-thinking about the same thing..and I am back to square one.
So , tell me guys…do u enjoy staying at home?
Do you enjoy working?
