As a parent I put my child first. It is surprising how people assume that if you don't have a paid job, then you're just sitting at home being lazy. I sometimes envy friends who have demanding jobs and they rely on nannies and au pairs. I don't doubt that working more would relieve my, now slight, PPP. There is a job available which I'm applying for and I just hope that I can sparkle through the interview, enjoy the work, grow with it and be there for the family. I'd like to hear from anybody else who has "given up" work and is now finding their way back. K.
