I almost titled this “I’m lazy and here’s how I stay that way”.
But that’s not true- I’m not lazy… far from it. I don’t think you can be a self-employed/ wife/ mom and be lazy.
What I am is annoyed when I have to work harder than I really should at an activity I dislike.
When I first became a mom, that was my full-time job. And I cherished every bit that went with it. Yes, even the cleaning and cooking. I loved caring for my family.
And though I still love caring for my family, my role has shifted. The kids are mostly self-sufficient, my freelance business has grown to a nearly full-time job, and I am re-discovering how to be a couple with my husband, beyond being parents.
