Yes, Cass gets a hiding on the odd occasion. But why did I feel like a bad mom explaining that to her teacher?
An increased amount of young children's lives were brutally cut short. I looked at Cassy in the rear view mirror, innocent and trusting, unable to fathom if I'd lost her.
I remember the very last time that I spoke to you. Never realising that it was not goodbye for the evening, but for a lifetime.
Being committed to your job and duties is one thing. Putting your health second is another. Here's how a death made me sit up and take notice.
Now that Cass is older and started creche, I've become the career woman/ mom I never thought I'd be. The late one. And I'm not a fan. I thought that I needed more hours in the day (every day), until I listened to a talk about leadership and discovered something else...
So I'm about 5kgs away from my goal weight but my body feels as though it's hit a plateau. But I've come so far and I'm not ready to give up when the finish line is so near!
