Yesterday my blog site was down and I couldn’t log on. I had all these witty things I wanted to say and lots of funny moments to help lighten the mood of the previous two posts but it was down. Now, due to a severe case of Mummy Brain, I have forgotten, so there will be none of these. Humble apologies.
Yesterday Ivy and Noah still had croup and I had to call in sick for work. When my nursing unit manager called me to find out what the problem was I resigned. For all the world I felt that I could not possibly work and look after sick babies for the Winter and be any good to either parties so I made the choice to leave.
It all feels a bit unreal today. I have been employed as a nurse and a midwife for ten years. I worked throughout the girls’ toddler years (and Lily’s baby years). With Ivy and Noah though, I am beaten. I just can’t do it anymore. So, I am going to be a SAHM (stay at home mum) for a while. It could be good and it could be just what I need right now. So while croup has kept me up for the last two nights and I have cursed it to the ends of the earth, in some strange way it has set me free from the pressure of juggling work and home.
