Being a parent is hard. There are endless decisions to make. And I’d say 99% of decisions you make aren’t made without consideration of your offspring. Even down to buying a new coat… ‘But can I wipe the muddy boot prints off the bottom of this coat after they’ve inevitably fallen into a puddle and I have to carry them, their bags and their scooter back from the park?’
Last year I made a decision about a shift in my working life which was made more difficult with having my boys. I’d not considered anyone else in the thought process so found it very interesting when people decided to pass comment on my choices both directly and passively. Sorry what? Will we ever reach a stage where people just do them and find themselves unconcerned with everyone else’s business?
