Now that my kids are older, I no longer have an au pair, but I did for a long time.
An au pair is not a fancy nanny. Well it could be a fancy nanny, if I were in fact a fancy lady.
But I’m not a fancy lady. I’m just a woman, with kids, who wants to work on some amazing shiz as well as be a parent and a girlfriend and an aunty and a daughter and a sister and….well you get it. A pretty normal kind of person who has kids and works.
Because I want to and choose to. Because although I love my children and can do housework and generally juggle everything, I don’t want to ALL the stuff ALL of the time. I love my job. I’m freaking great at it, but to be really magic at it I need to have space and time and focus and not be worrying about the next school pick-up or trying to fit everything in 2.5 hours before Kindy finishes or dinner or the state of the house when I walk back in there after work.
The thing that makes me freaking great at my job is my support system. I don’t do it all. I have at various times tried to do it all. I can. I was a superangrycrazylady (YES that IS a word).
READ it all ...
A 12 week online program to support newly single women through that hideous part of soul-destroying break-up. So they don’t jump back on the horse too soon with a differently dressed version of the same guy (horse).
Gap Year Intensive is about taking a Gap Year (not necessarily a literal year, but definitely a metaphysical one) from men (or alternatively other external things you get addicted to, at the expense of doing your own work on yourself) so you can do whatever you need to do to clean up the inside stuff, let go of the past stuff and the get on with clarifying and manifesting the relationship you want. It’s mostly about becoming the one so you can find the one. It’s for (fairly) recently single women. Even if you think you’ll never date again. Or if you have thrown men out for Netflix and chocolate but secretly want an awesome guy to hang with while you watch shows and binge eat!
For me, Gap Year was the best way ever to plug the holes.
