What do you do all day, mum?

As part of a summer series, workingmums is asking parents to get their children to draw, paint or otherwise represent what they do for a living in a picture – the more imaginative the better. We will be doing a prize draw in mid-August for the best entry.

 

 

What do our children really think of what we do all day when we are working? As part of a summer series, we are asking parents to get their children to draw, paint or otherwise represent what they do for a living in a picture – the more imaginative the better – and send it to us with their first name, age and what you actually do as a job on it. We will be doing a prize draw in mid-August for the best entry.

Above is a picture by Hannah Falk, aged 10, of her mum Christina, who is an archive researcher.  Below Christina talks about being a working parent.

workingmums.co.uk: What is the best thing about being a mum/dad?

Christina: The hugs.

WMs: What are the main qualities you have developed or enhanced as a mum/dad?

Christina: I would love to say it’s patience, but it may be insanity as I seem to spend a lot of time doing the same things and expecting a different result (such as hoping that today will be the day that everyone is ready for school on time without a mad panic at the end).

WMs: Do you think you are better at doing your job since having children?

Christina: No, my job often feels like something I have to fit in around everything else.

WMs: Is parenting harder than you anticipated?

Christina: Not exactly harder, but it’s more relentless than I thought it would be.

WMs: Do you expect too much of yourself?

Christina: Probably, I definitely expect too much of others.

WMs: What are you most proud of as a mum/dad?

Christina: That my kids are amazing, despite any parenting deficiencies.

WMs: Do you see your friends less since becoming a parent?

Christina: Yes, definitely.
