I never envisioned being a mother. I had dedicated 7 years of my life to creating a successful business and didn’t think I had room for being a mother and a businesswoman because of the demand on my time for both of them.
The business I own is not a very baby friendly business, even though it is run from home. It is a dog boarding facility so it isn’t a place a baby can crawl around safely and because it is like a dog park, in that dogs run around with other dogs, the concentration level whilst at work has to be 100% – Suffice to say, for me, having both world of career woman and mother was not in my mind’s grasp.
And as I write this, I am staring at my beautiful almost 7 month old son and have found out I am also 12 weeks pregnant with the second one. How did this happen? Well, the stories are true … if you find the right person, things change and things sure did change. Not only will I have two babies under 2 by November this year, I also have two stepchildren, which are my partners. Going from zero children to four within the space of 3 years!
