This Half Life

I think the Government's initiatives to get more women to have children are well-meaning, but possibly no one can completely resolve the issue of time.

When women work a full day, then unless their children only sleep in the afternoon and the women themselves stop sleeping, you only have the following timeslots for the children.

Assuming 1 child only, and that the woman takes a taxi or car to work and only works 1 hour of overtime every day.

7.30am - 8.30am
7.30pm - 10.30pm

That's 4 hours a day.

If you have 2 children, that's 2 hours a day, and so it progressively gets less and less with each successive child.

I know all the arguments about quality time and everything. But they don't mean a thing.

I miss my son.

Yup. Indeed. And then what if the mum travels often and all that?

Then you are well and truly screwed, my friend.

I used to love travelling for work. Now I just grieve for the lost time that I should have spent on my son.

I am required to travel 50% and have 2 primary school children and my spouse travels 80% of his time! why the childcare leave is only extended to families with 7 yrs of age and less? its this age that is much demanding... exams coming, guess i have to teach them over MSN or webcam again ...

I think you should have more kids: when you get to double figures (of kids, not body size) then they pretty much look after themselves.

Pretty much.

Much.

Mmm.
