Why mothers want to leave their jobs to stay with their children – Marusia speaks

In the photographs of reports like “Why mothers want to leave their jobs to stay with their children”, it seems like the mothers have (literally) lost their heads. These mothers don’t have hearts, too. So, even if a text values the mother who carries on with her professional career, the images say the opposite, feeding the guilt, tagging the situation as if it was an abandonment.

I have even a guess about who took the photos for those reports:

The Red Queen, of Alice in Wonderland: “Off with their heads!”

I’d rather be:

  • A full-time professional when I am at work (and my children at school); and
  • A full-time mother when I am with my kids.
  • But, above all, I prefer keeping my identity: being Marusia (with a head and a heart), full-time, all the time.
