Utterly Meaningless » Blog Archive » A NORTHERN IRISH MOTHER’S DAY

    Carlotta indicated in the comments below that the UK didn’t celebrate Mother’s Day yesterday, so this article’s timing must be a coincidence. But it’s a very nice profile of a young home educating mom.

    Roy and I were married when I still had a year to go on my occupational therapy degree course at the University of Ulster, and I was five months’ pregnant when I was doing my finals. I gained a first class honours and was asked to stay on to do a PhD.

    I was faced with the decision of juggling motherhood and a career – but I’m the sort of person who likes to give 100% to whatever I’m doing. I’d always wanted to have a family and felt very blessed to be able to have a child so I decided to stay at home and be a mother.

    Read the whole thing; it’s a nice way to start the day.
