    Default Just curious if there is another *me* out there?

    Long story short:

    Im a mum, I work part-time, I also run my own business full-time, Im a student, a house wife (I cook, clean, shop etc my DH does diddle squat around the house and he also works away ALOT) My DD is also only in care one day a week, and the rest of the time shes with me, so technically im a SAHM too,

    anyone else tick all the boxes?

    I was looking in the 'work and study issues' section of the forum and thinking the ONLY sub forum i couldnt post in was maternity leave and armed forces.

    So I'm thinking Id like to form a little (or big) group for myself and others who tick all (or most) of the boxes and chat about how to juggle everything, tips, advice, venting ofcourse you know, a little hide away with like minders but I have a feeling Im a minority and I wouldnt be suprised if there isnt a single other person on the hub who's in as deep.

    so, is there? Stick you head up and say hello

    Not exactly like you but..
    I do casual relief work, study full time online, am a housewife and SAHM to 3 (soon to be 4) under 6.. Although my daughter starts school tomorrow so that'll take one out of full time home care. My youngest 2 are also in care 1 day a week.
    Doesn't leave much time for anything but is usually pretty good fun :-)

    This would be me I think I will let you decide:

    I work and I run my own web design business, when I get home I cook and clean and take care of the kids, help with homework etc, I bathe them get them ready for bed. I will also be returning to school want to get my bachelors and then move onto my masters (just not sure what in atm) the only difference is my hubby doesnt work

    I tick some, and not others.

    SINGLE MUM- TICK
    Full time employee- TICK
    Part time Student- TICK
    New Entrepreneur- TICK
    Soccer player- TICK

    Apart from that- call me taxi, accountant, cook, resource supplier, teacher and conflict resolution for the supposedly mature.

    Well I hope to be like you this time next year! I am a self-employed consultant, studying and expecting bub #1 this year. I do a lot of the domestic stuff and all of the cooking, shopping etc.

    When bub is a few months old I've lined up mum to have them 1 day a week so I can visit clients, but otherwise I will be working from home, still studying and doing the housework / cooking etc.


    Lucky I like to be organised, I'm going to need it!!!
