Sitting at home

By | March 24, 2005

I watched that David McWilliams programme in which I starred. One of the other panellists makes a little speech about her decision to work outside the home. Her argument is peppered with at least 5 separate comments about how she could not ‘sit at home’ and mind children. She admires women who ‘sit at home’. She would be bored ‘sitting at home’. The camera flicks to me smiling benignly at her. I am actually thinking, sit???? What sitting?? The only time I sit is when I am feeding the baby. After that I run. Constantly. What do you know??
