    I feel like taking a couple of these every other day and using them as Facebook statuses!

    I've been off on maternity leave since May and am going back to work at the end of January..... and I'm looking forward to it.

    So if that hasn't already been turned in to a rule already, I'd like to add it.

    Rule # ___ : Wanting to, and willingly, going back to work does not mean you hate your kids or that you don't like spending time with them. It simply means that your particular personality needs that extra bit of stimulation that a work environment can provide. It's a personality trait, not a mental problem :lol:

    Teachers at school give you strange look when they learn that kid has gone to kinder at creche, and responds,"Oh, I see."
    This is so TRUE! The same thing happened to me when my DD started school a couple of years ago. The teacher replied with "but she didn't go to a real kinder?" I said "Yes, her kinder program was done at day care."

    Her teacher still classifies DD as not attending kinder!

    I used to be a working mum and am now a stay at home mum. I worked 25 hours and organized the house whilst hubby worked full-time. I hated it when hubby came home and would ask what I had done with my day. Um wasn't it obvious with the clean house and my paycheck coming in as well? He certainly noticed when i stopped doing stuff around the house lol

    Oh yeah lettabean but as a working mum, you're house is likely to be spotless anyway as you are never home and / or you can afford a cleaner

    You are not allowed to complain about the cost of school holiday programs if you want to work...

    If you don't want to pay for school holiday programs then just take a few weeks holiday and look after your kids yourself

    If you don't want your kids to go to OSHcare then just cut your hours and just go home and be with your kids

    You working mums just can't haven't all you know...

    Oh yes WCM - the good old "mothers can choose their own hours and get special privilidges" nonsense! Pfffff.

    I've also found that because I am a mother, I have the ability to split myself into two people. I CAN be at work at 7 am AND drop DS off at school at 8.30 am. Totally possible according to collegues, boss, friends, etc There is no "hardship" being a working mum - you're a mum, if you work it's not to support a family, you work to buy luxury cars, pearls, and pay for cleaners *tee hee*

    Oh I wish I had time to read this whole thread thoroughly but sadly I am at work and too busy copping snide comments about the fact that I didn't come into work on the public holiday yesterday (oh ok then, I will just leave my 4 year old at home alone then shall I??)
