It’s been a while my friends. Quite a while.
I have been purposely absent because I have been doing alot of thinking. I recently had my second kid. And I love her just as much as the first, who knew? She’s only 4 months old but I’ve been thinking about her future alot . Her’s and her brother.
And this is what I’ve come up with.
I don’t think it’s my place to put them online.
There, I said it.
I don’t think it’s my place to tell stories about their childhood when they have no choice in the matter. I think I should reserve the right for how they present themselves online. When they’re ready.
Because we live in a digital age and I work at a digital company I live this reality. I think everyone has a right to decide what they should put online and my peers who love to talk about their families – I commend them. But I can’t be that person.
So, the reality of this decision left me in a bit of a conundrum. If I didn’t talk about my kids- what would I talk about? I know I am so much more than just a mother but that part of my life is quite pervasive right now so what’s left?
As I said – alot of thinking.
Turns out, I’ve come up with many thing I’d like to discuss. I’d like to discuss being a working mother. I’d like to discuss money and money challenges in families. While I was on mat leave, I had time to talk to other moms and it seems like alot of people are not discussing money. I’d like to talk about how to progress your career in this busy life stage. And yes, along the way there will be a few recipes, outfits and fun stuff but overall – I’d like to focus on where I am now. A professional working mother who, like the rest of us is just trying to keep it all together:)
So that’s what I’ve been thinking about.
See ya around.
