A Mum and an Accountant last blog post got me thinking about all eggs in one basket.
Just Lilac1's blog title says to me that her time is spread between these two key areas of child care and her career. Before I go on, please note this blog post is in no way of criticism of Lilac1 blog posts.
If I had a children I just wonder what it have looked liked if my blog title was A Dad and an Accountant? I do not think it would have gone down well with the readers. The key reason for this is as a male I am not expected to be the key child carer trying to balance child care with a career. Of course there is a very good reason for this, which is most men do not do the juggling act.
Most men tend to have all their eggs in one basket. I think that is what is expected of us. Generally it is not sexy for a guy to say I am trying to build a career with challenges of child care? More likely unsaid response from others would be - what a wimp?
I think it is best not to have all my eggs in one basket. It means I need to find something else in case the practice world does not work out?
