Mummy piggymum: Hi, I am a working mum with 2 kids

Hello there!

I am a half dead full time working mum with a 4 yr old girl & a 2 yr old boy. Wanted to work part time but boss disapproved :(

From one working mother to another, I know exactly how you feel. So little time with the children! My SAHM friends have warned me that it gets even harder once they start primary school.

It is great for the moms who get to work part-time or from home. My kind of work can be done partly from home but it's all about changing the mind-set of the employer and equiping their staff with the necessary telecommute infrastructure. Unfortunately many firms are still conservative and don't want to start work-from-home schemes.

Yes, it is really a great experience to work part-time. I did that for around 2 years until I am almost doing full time work at part-time pay. :?

Hi workingmum & jedamum,

In fact my work can also be done anywhere so long as I bring my laptop with me but my boss likes to hold meetings & talk non-stop! When I am on Maternity Leave, he kept calling me for "discussion" until I couldn't tahan, switched-off my hp! :x

My hubby also warned me about working part-time. He said I may not necessary hv more time by working part-time. It's not worth it to take pay cut & yet need to do all work within 3 days. So, I am stuck! Sometimes disillusion :?
