It’s A Wrap – Last Day of Work and School. Hey Guys, I am super excited to share it’s a wrap – last day of Work for me and last day of School for Sasha today for the Christmas holidays. I am very happy, the year has been nothing but success all through. I am very much exhausted though, as you can imagine. Both Sasha-Ann and I deserve a really good 12 months worth of rest.
It’s A Wrap – Last Day of Work and School
Proud of Us
I have truly enjoyed myself this year, with so many positive changes. My daughter’s development and knowledge have improved massively. I have also built more confidence in myself too. To be honest, I just love my daughter and I are growing up together. We have both been through a lot of challenges since I found out I was pregnant. So to be where we are now, it’s just amazing.
Guys, think about it. I have been working since she started Primary School and not once have I received a phone call from the school about her either misbehaving or been sick. That is something I am incredibly proud of. I think all parents want to be able to go to work with peace of mind. And know to believe the fact that our kids are having a great time at school, makes it so much easier to work.
I do have some guilt about working, however, I have learnt to let go of that guilt and see the positive side of things. Life is life and I just hope one day she will understand why things were like the way were. I will put up a post about the ‘Guilt of a Working Single Mother’ soon, but it hurts me that I have not been able really to see her development and work on our relationship as much as I had hoped.
I have no choice other than to rely on the teachers to give me feedback about her development. Unfortunately, I have not been able to attend any parents evening as I am working on the hosting days. However, there are some things Sasha-Ann does and says that I noticed, and thought to myself ‘wait a minute, she has not said that word before’.
Despite everything, Sasha-Ann has been a very brave, strong little girl. It’s not easy for me as an adult to wake up 5 AM in the morning to get ready for the day. So I can’t imagine how it has been for a 5-year-old, who has been on this journey since she was 2 years old. Not once she has gotten herself in trouble. She just made things easy for me. It’s like she trusted me and said ‘Mummy I Got You’.
Well, we celebrate! This year has been filled with success, left, right, centre, everywhere. I finally feel I have gained my life back. In the last 3 years, I have worked very hard to get to where I am now. It took a lot of courage, determination, strength and sacrifice. The world is a very brutal world and you have to be brutal x 2 to get you to want. I want to use this opportunity to say a big thank you to those who have supported me and daughter.
Was It All Worth It?
At the end of the day, all I wanted was a good life for my daughter and me. And that’s what I got. As a single mum, with disabilities and a health condition, I would do anything to provide for my daughter. So yes, it was worth it.
