I'm losing my status as a stay at home mom this week because I've started working outside the home again. I'm a preschool teacher. At the preschool where my mother is the director. And only on the days Gus and Jack are attending that preschool. (It's a family affair.)
It shouldn't be that difficult. I've got a nice setup, I know. But doing ANYthing with twins takes some planning and creativity. Today I was at school with the boys for two and a half hours. I got maybe 30 minutes worth of work done. The rest of the time I spent feeding the boys lunch, playing outside with them, and chatting with people who wanted to see the boys. Then I came home and it took me three hours to type up a welcome packet that normally would have taken me twenty minutes. Sheesh.
So to all you mamas out there, especially twin-mamas, who work full time outside the home: Kudos to you. You have my honest and heartfelt admiration.
Does the dual role of mother and worker get easier with time?
