There was once a Mummy who loved her children, but couldn't afford to stay at home with them every day. In fact, she didn't want to stay at home with them, as her brain would become frazzled and she would shout at her husband a lot the second he walked through the door. The problem was, it was a bit tricky trying to be a good Mummy and trying to be a good worker. The Mummy and Daddy did not live in a huge house or have extravagant tastes, they did not buy lots of things or go on big holidays. In fact they never did anything for themselves at all. They both had good jobs but were finding it very hard to make ends meet.
Then one day the Mummy found that both her children were very poorly, she had no sleep for three nights in a row and had to go to work for ten hours each day. When she got home after the third day the first thing her son did was puke all over her work clothes. It was a sign.
The Mummy is desperately trying to find a way she can be at home with her two little boys and not lose her mind (or her house). The Daddy works really long hours and hardly ever gets to see his children. When the Mummy is not at work she is so exhausted and drained she hardly has any energy to do anything.
Something has got to give.
