it has been more than a year since i’ve given up my job. admittedly, i was so ambivalent at first. when i made my decision of resigning known to my friends, i’ve got a lot of questions along with some raised eyebrows. really, it was a tough decision to make.
just a few weeks ago, my husband told me that there was a opening for a teaching position in a British school here in bahrain. and he even suggested seeking for a yaya to take care of the kids so i could work. i entertained the thought. but after weighing all the pro’s and con’s, i’ve come to a decision of going on with my career of being a full-time mom. now, i can’t imagine anyone taking my place as their primary caregiver.
we’re planning to have a vacation this coming january. there’s no certainty yet whether i and the kids are going back here together with my husband. i’m considering the possibility of pursuing a master’s degree when we get home. hay, i hope i could find a school offering online education on master’s degree in special education. then, the case would be settled. we don’t have to be afar from each other anymore.
