Full Time Working Mum Job Specification
Today I have been thinking about my CV or Curriculum Vitae as we used to have to call them when I was at school . Yes, I left school in the 1990′s. Such a long time ago! So, I wonder what my actual full time working mum CV should look like if I did pull together everything that I really do in a day.
So thought I should put together my Job Spec just for fun and work out my CV from here.
Lets have a think, what do I do?
- Laundry Assistant – Ironing, taking up trousers, sewing on buttons
- Chef -Breakfast and lunch boxes – healthy options: dad would just put in crisps and chocolate bars. He doesn’t realise he packs, I unpack and repack with healthier options.
- PA - making sure books and homework are in the bags along with any letters, raffle tickets, birthday cards for friends, reading book, violins, PE kit etc.
- Personal hygienist – showers, teeth, deodorant, hair washing and brushing
- Chauffeur – to deliver children from home to appropriate schools.
Now that’s before my normal day job. As a Commercial Account Handler for an Insurance Broker. So then I come home to be:
- School Teacher – homework, I don’t really need to do more work after my day at work to be fair and I am not the most patient especially when trying to explain homework I don’t really understand – algebra and ratios
- Prison Governor apparently! Sometimes its like living in a prison according to my eldest when it comes to rules and bed times
- Cleaner – though not too often as my husband is better at this than me – OCD issues I think
- Time Keeper
- Judge and Jury
- Interpreter – I need to do that thingy? You know thingy they said can you ring them?
I am sure there is more. Oh yeah, nearly forgot beck and call girl (pretty woman).
Whoops nearly forgot my most important one newbie blogger.
No wonder I struggle occasionally remembering everything!
Today I forgot it was non-school uniform day so send my poor Leo in in school uniform. It wasn’t even a day to raise money they had to bring in items for the school Christmas event. I felt awful, poor little bugger. I was relieved to see at least two other children in his class in their uniforms as well. Leo wasn’t that bothered either to be fair but I just didn’t have time to go back home, change him and go to work. Thank goodness.
Maybe I need more than a chalk board and a calendar in the kitchen. Might have to start adding everything into the calendar on my phone!
