Not this Sassy House Queen.
A first-time blogger and a first-time stay at home mother, with my third child. When my third baby was born, going back to work was not an option. I would witness all his milestones, no excuses.
Being a mother is naturally a major part of who I am as a person at the same timing a mother does not define me. I have worked hard to keep my personality mine not just being a mum.
The birth timings of my three children are leading me to have 3 distinct types of motherhood. The Young mum, the right age mum and now moving into the older mum of a young child.
I have been unlucky in-love during my life and because of this I have been a single during most of my time being a mother. For me having a partnered mother is as hard as being a single mother. Having another person involved in the decisions, all of them is hard to adjust to.
A sick child
When Caleb, my no 17-year-old firstborn, was 6 he started to become lethargic and fatigued and what seemed like ‘growing pains’. In November of ’08 I organised to see a Paediatrician at the local hospital. The start of 2 years of living between a hospital and home began. After the tests and Christmas. They diagnosed Caleb with Juvenile Dermatomyositis. JDM is an autoimmune disease that attacks the muscles and the skin.
The treatment was at Westmead Childrens Hospital. Not a nice place regarding seeing all kinds of sick children. Two years after diagnosis Caleb was officially in remission.
As I referred to before this is the first time I have been on house duties. My working career has focused my skill sets around working with animals, sales and hospitality.
I am obsessed with most things cocktail.
It’s a creative outlet that I love. Creativity is something we all have. Creativity is a skill that should have encouragement and be fostered. Being creative comes in many forms. Just like everything else about us its unique. Being an at-home-parent is very demanding. On call all day every day and a jack of all trades. Some days your mind, body and soul tired.
‘His’ House Queen
With the aid of my husband the realization I wear a Crown. He has worked tirelessly to ensure that the opportunity for me to be home is available.
Starting this blog is another form I can express myself in. This blog is almost like a creative diary.
