Diary of a Stay-At-Home-Mom



The short version:

Before I quit my job: Takeaways, and more takeaways and… more expensive takeaways.

After I quit my job: Homecooked food at home

-------------------------------------

The long version:

Before I quit my job: 

Little FECS: What takeaway sushi from Føtex Supermarket again? Mommy, I am tired of it. How about Letz Sushi for dinner?

A few days or weeks later…

Little FECS: What takeaway sushi from Letz Sushi again? I am tired of it. How about Stick ‘n’ Sushi for dinner? 

Mommy looking at Little FECS' eyes as convincingly as I could: It’s too expensive. Mommy has no money.

Little FECS: Don’t bluff, you worked 60 hours last week and got paid overtime. You have a lot of money, and also you have no time to spend them. Stick ‘n’ Sushi ok?

Mommy: Aaarrggghhh… tired and no surplus to teach or fight with our son.

On son’s birthday…

Mommy: Let’s celebrate at Sticks ‘n’ Sushi for your birthday this weekend.

Little FECS: What Stick ‘n’ Sushi again? Can we go somewhere more fanciful, please? We just had Stick ‘n’ Sushi for takeaway dinner last few nights, when you came back home late from work and didn’t have the time to cook.

Mommy: @@@@ What entitled children we are raising!!!

After I quit my job:

Little FECS: Can we eat Stick ‘n’ Sushi for dinner?

Mommy: No, mommy’s not working, we have no more money. Mommy will cook. We will have homecooked steam fish with broccoli for dinner 😊

Little FECS: Ok, ya, true, you don’t earn money anymore.

On a recent special occasion…

Mommy: Let’s celebrate at Sticks ‘n’ Sushi this weekend.

Little FECS: Yeh… hurray!!! Stick ‘n’ Sushi… it’s been so long since we last had it.

Mommy: @@@@ Hurray, good to have our contented and thankful son back 😊
