Skip to my Lou

Yesterday we went to a dance class. My son screamed and squealed with delight watching the girls dancing.. do I smell a Producer?? And, Miss Fancy? Well, she said like 10 times, "This is fun, Mum."

I am pretty glad I quit my job. Yep, I quit that sideline gig (still got my regular job to return to next ???). Let's face it was doing the shittiest job EVER. And, if I hadn't I would have spent another moment like the one described above looking over my shoulder wondering if I would get busted for doing the shittiest job ever. So 6 more months of mat leave... and I will enjoy these guilt free.

You know on the way to Roots of Empathy yesterday I thought about how I really got the nerve to do it. How? Part of it was individuals with a knack for helping with this sort of crisis.. but it was also the acceptance and self-acceptance I have built in this blogourhood of parenting. I think?

Know what I mean?

You Canadians have this amazing maternity leave. I'm always so surprised when new Canadian mothers rush right back to work a few months after their babies are born. Not that I blame you, but I believe in taking full advantage of every situation that is handed to me. So, in the spirit of maternity leave... Hurrah! Enjoy the next six months!

"Do whatever feels right for you" might be the worst possible advice to give to teenagers regarding their sexual activity (at least without including a zillion or so caveats) --- but it is the BEST possible advice for working parents to follow!

ENJOY! Life is too short to waste feeling guilty.
