I often think about my life before being a mother but I don't remember so much about it. My babies have upset my everyday life and I could not imagine it without them.
When people ask me: "what do you do?" I always answer: "I'm a full time mum!". They make a smile that means: "what are you complaining about? You don't have to punch your card every morning!". Well, I'm not complaining. There are some women, anyway, who told me they can't wait to start to work after their maternity. Yes, being a mother it's not a piece of cake. I'm the first who wake up in the morning and the last who go to sleep, I drink coffee from the empty cup when I play with my children and I sing lullabies when my eyes are almost closed. I don't have lunch or coffee break, I can't say "I come back home" meaning that I'm really going to chill. I think this (and so more) is not recognized and underestimated.
Have you ever think about a mum who decides to strike? What a disaster!
Being a mother means being indispensabile, not simply useful. Come on, does a job like this exist?!
