I want to be a fun mum. I want to be a fun person. But I'm just not.
I can be fun, I like fun, I just don't instigate it very often.
In fact I don't really instigate anything very often.
My motto could be, "Do I have to?"
I don't have the kids in swimming lessons even though Laurie Lawrence has done his best to try to make me.
I don't have the kids in any lessons/classes/teams of any kind. They are only 5 and 2 now, but I'm sure one day they will be when they're so keen and pester me into having to.
I don't visit anyone or invite people over.
I don't go to Mass/church even though I keep saying one day I'll take the family.
It's a personality flaw that I am very aware of. I just don't require myself to make an effort.
But, last week I did see the deputy principal at my son's school and the school I used to work at.
I did fill out an online resume that took for.ever.
I did put my name down at the school for relief teaching on Fridays.
And, I didn't have to.
So, you see, I can force myself to do things, but I'll still be thinking...."Do I have to?"
What's your personality flaw?
If you have any, of course.
