|Friends... we all need them|
The kids are gone in the morning and when they are home, the house is always a flurry of activity. When the spouse comes home in the evening, mummy is in greater demand than ever. Sometimes, I can't even hear myself as the three of them will be talking to me at the same time and demanding my attention all at once.
I didn't have time to be lonely, or so I thought. However, recently some events made me rethink this.
My domestic helper may be returning to her home country for good. Why, just the thought of this made me cry buckets. I cried till my eyes were all swollen. Why? My helper has been with us for 4 years. In that time, she has not only become a helper in my household chores, she has become a companion and a friend.
Just thinking of how lonely it would be not having someone to laugh with and talk to about the kids and other things makes me realize that sometimes being a SAHM can be quite a lonely job. Pin It
