    Default Working mummies chat (like we get time !?!?)

    Hi girlies!!!

    Ive been meaning to do this for ages but I REALLY REALLY need to be socializing with mummies who work fulltime!!! I Dont know any IRL (exept one buhubbian) But I would really like for us to have our own place to chat and network. I often go into the birthing groups and feel so much out of it than them so lets chat house work (or lack of it) mile stones that seem to creep up on us ever so quickly what jobs we do and what challenges we face... I think we should have a roll call to so just add your name and details you want us to know (I'll start) I wonder if this can be a sticky? Oh and Daddies welcome!!!!

    Name - Leah (SB)
    Age - 24 yrs (next week)
    DD - Lucy 20mth
    Status - Married
    F/T or P/T - Full time
    Job discription - Ministerial Manager Department of Climate change (Canberra)
    My Beef - I have a messy house and i cant do anything about it because Im too tired to think let alone clean!

    Another working mum here

    I'm a network engineer in IT and my beef is also a messy house because by the time I come home from work, cook dinner, get the kids fed, bathed and ready for bed I'm just too tired for anything else yet I still go to bed about 1am even though the baby then wakes me up 2 hours later for a feed!! grrrr.... and getting out of bed in the morning to trod off to work is a real killer...

    but yay to all those working mums out there! We're not alone!!
