The first answer to the question “working mum’s can still have a go at being a mother?” is yes. And they can. Mums going into employment after childbirth are often doing so as a means of bringing in a sufficient income to support the new born. And working for an hour or two at a coffee shop isn’t the end of the world.
Some full time working moms may also need to work for social reasons. Others may want to supplement their income through child rearing. Other working mums may simply want to have a little fun, which is great, as far as parenting is concerned! Some full time working moms even choose to work from home, which can be a great choice if you want to spend more time with your kids and feel like you are still a mum.
There are so many things that you can do to make sure that you take your career into your own hands. If you are a working mum woe then you are in luck because you can turn that misfortune into an advantage. You can use your good fortune (and if you are lucky enough, good health) to get back into shape and get back to the place you once called home.
But working mums need to be careful what kind of career path they take. It is perfectly possible to go back to school and get a degree, but many full time working mum’s choose to go back into the workforce. This is fine. You’ll be able to get another job if necessary, and you’ll always be able to find something on the internet – just don’t assume that you can just plug in and expect to make loads of money.
The truth is that working mothers have a unique opportunity to change the world. It is women like this that influence children, grandchildren and future generations. And it’s also pretty funny when you realise that most working mothers only have a passing interest in parenting. Sure there is the odd afternoon at the local park that will allow them to babysit a few wee ones, but that’s about as far as they get. They simply don’t have the time or inclination to do anything really meaningful with their parenting, so why waste their days doing something they find boring.
Becoming a working mum can give working mum’s a new lease on life. They can pick up a new career that they love, without having to juggle children, a partner and a small garden full of plants! Many working mothers take great pride in being parents, even though they have no time to do so. So, if you are looking for a career that is fulfilling, has flexibility and allows you to impact the world, then become a working mum.
