Returning to work – Who will love my children

During my time as a stay at home Mum, the theoretical idea of returning to work has been a constant conversation in my mind. If I were to go for it, what would I do about the kids? How would they cope? Who would take care of them? How much would it cost? The questions of course were never truly answered because it’s very difficult to conclude anything until you actually get a job. It’s a chicken and egg situation which didn’t really need an answer. Until now.

Finding employment with no upper skill limit

*contributed collaborative post

Some people find pleasure in a job that offers plenty of money and accolades. Some find pleasure in work that is easy, relaxing and low-tempo. Some, perhaps the people who have come to intelligently realize the benefit in always improving, find pleasure in working hard and developing in the best manner possible, and finding employment that is sure to never prevent them from improving.
