As with many mothers, the thought of staying home to look after L crossed my mind many times. This was especially when I think about whether I’m spending my time meaningfully. But the sheer idea of not being financially independent makes the thought extremely daunting. However, when I thought about how unpredictable life is and if I were to leave this place tomorrow, would I regret not spending enough time with L or not earning enough dosh? The answer was clear to me. So, after weighing the pros and cons, and also consulting some of my girlfriends who have taken the plunge, I’ve decided to be a full-time mum. As I planned what to do with my time, I realized that there’s just so much on my to-do list. I feel that I’m even busier now.
