I often considered being a SAHM (stay at home mum) and a WAHM (work at home mum) however recent circumstances have ensured that I have firmly returned to my role as a BOTTOM (bugger off to the office mum); much to the excitement of twin boy and twin girl as they now firmly believe that as Mummy is earning pennies so they can go on holiday again…
As they cannot yet access the internet to read ‘mummy’s bog’ I am comfortable in telling you that this is an illusion in their minds as in our house we have adopted a modern approach and have inverted the traditional parenting model. In short I go out and earn the green and he who helped create them is now performing the role of Daddy Daycare. Which means we are still teetering on the edge of financial ruin as its hard to feed five growing tummies on one little income. So unless they think a holiday is pitching a tent in the backyard and singing Kum Ba Ya twin boy and girl are going to be a tad disappointed when the 6 week break rolls around.
But hey ho, I owe I owe so its off to work I go.
I have discovered a couple of things already in my new role as a BOTTOM.
The first being that my kids are fickle little beggars, after a whole year of playing Barbie and Buzz and even getting that bloody play doh out they declared after one day in Daddy Day care that their father was indeed more fun than me.
Another recent discovery of a BOTTOM is that if you change a fully packed super dooper poop filled cloth nappy just before you go to work that smell will stay with you all day. No amount of Calvin Klein will shift it.
And finally as the end of the working day approaches it is blooming hard to concentrate on your day job when your inner boob is calling ‘milk me BOTTOM, milk me now’ after eight hours of being apart from a small child.
But apart from that the perks of being a BOTTOM are quite good, free tea, all day with no questions asked, except for one lump or two? Plus lunches without wiping someone else’s backside and hours and hours without hearing the word “why”!
Lifes not so bad after all…
Any other BOTTOM’s out there?
