But Lisa points out she doesn't have kids. She works 9-11 hours a day.
You can't do this when you have kids. Not unless you don't really like them very much and employ SuperNanny to do the job for you.
Lisa also has a lovely wife whereas I have the other half. And that's mostly like having a 3rd kid to look after!
I never get chance to work for more than 6 hours at a time. And it's usually less than that. It's all StopStartStopStartJuggling. I stop working at about 3.15pm every day and then have to catch up and finish stuff as soon as I get chance later. It's getting easier now they're getting older. The big one mostly stays in her room unless she needs food. But there's always something going on that stops me working.
Last week I spent all day Wednesday on the little one's school trip, Thursday at the little one's school anniversary party and Friday afternoon at Celebration Assembly.
I didn't have to. I could have worked. But it was my last school trip ever. He starts high school in September. And I was the only parent who was invited. (Cos I'm a right laugh on school trips I think) And I didn't have to dress up in 1950's clothes and go to the anniversary party either. But he wanted me to go. And I'll never get chance to do that stuff again. And he got a certificate in assembly on Friday. And of course I never miss assembly. I've turned up for the last 10 years. I'm hoping for a flipping certificate myself in 5 weeks at my last one!
I suppose there'll be plenty of time to be a proper Lisa Congdon when they get bored of me and go off to do their own thing.
I'll just have to sort out SuperNanny for the other half and I can get cracking...
