“So, are you still working in Beijing after giving birth?”
“No, I stopped working recently.”
“Oh, so now you’re a full-time mum lah.”
Er…. ya? Of course I’m a full-time mum, which mum is not full-time?? Quite anal, but I haven’t been able to stick the label on myself. Rejoining the work force and slogging in the CBD from 9am-6pm doesn’t render a mother “non full-time”. Once a mummy, you’re a mummy 24/7.
Call me full-time babysitter.
