I’m coming out of retirement

Posted: 06/01/2017 in Uncategorized

As many of you will know just a little shy of a month over four years ago I dropped out of the rat race in order to spend time raising my two boys.

At the time they were both still in nappies (diapers) only one of them could walk with any level of stability.

Now they are both at proper school, wearing uniforms and making me so incredibly proud of what I have achieved.

Not many people are privileged enough to spend as much time with their children as I have with mine, don’t get me wrong it has been the toughest four years of my life emotionally. I went through severe depression, I got so lonely I found myself crying in the bathroom whilst small people banged on the door.

I hid behind masks from those that I loved yet the hardest of times passed and Mrs Bunny Chow was there to support me when I eventually opened up.

But now just before I go out on my final school run to hang out with the other school mums for the last time as the token dad (they’ve taken me in as one of their own and I can’t thank them enough) I look back over the last four years again with tears in my eyes and I am just so incredibly proud of what amazing little boys I have raised.

I’ve had a few minimum wage jobs along the way, I’ve had some success with my Photography but this new job will be going back into the automotive trade. I’ll be on a lower rung than where I left but I’ve climbed before and I will climb again.

The short ones are going to find it hard adjusting to pre and after-school clubs for which I am going to have to give a huge chunk of my new salary but they will adapt and overcome. Mrs BC is going to get her deepest desire of the last four years fulfilled as one of my first outgoings will be for a cleaner as I have done the best that a humble man can do for the last four years which quite frankly is pretty badly but, I never burned anything down and there were nearly always clean knickers somewhere in the house if not necessarily in the place she’d want them.

Being a parent is hard but rewarding.

I wouldn’t change it for the world.

  1. You have done a wonderful job Bunny and have every reason to be proud!! To this day I wish I could have stayed home with my boys, but I like to think that the daycares and before and after school programs were partly responsible for the strong, independent men they are today, and I’m sure it will be good for your boys too :). Love your positive attitude about the new job by the way. Go Bunny!!

    Well done Bunny. Every best wish for a long and successful career. The boys will be fine. You have given them a great start. Thanks to Mrs Bunny for making it possible. Good luck.
