My Favourite Job In The World

Mum Resume

To Whom It May Concern, Dear Sir/Madam,


Please find below my resume for the full-time position of Mum.

I feel I’d be perfect for the position offered as I have built up a strong knowledge of mothering over the past 10 years. I’m also very personable, have lots of patience and am passionate about kids.

I’ve travelled far and wide for a mother’s right to choose their own place for giving birth and even rallied on the steps of parliament to keep that right.

I have attended educational courses, both private, and group sessions, which have given me a great insight into the business of mothering. Extra skills and education were gained to complete some extra curricular activities such as two homebirths and ten years’ of breastfeeding (2.5 years for each child). I have also spent the past 10 years crafting with my children and featuring them on my blog. Some of my greatest skills include my event / party planning ability, cake decorating and craft teaching.

If you require any further information or would like to chat further, do not hesitate to get in touch.

My favourite job in the world is a job I so nearly didn’t have. You see, the doctors told me I had endometriosis as a young woman and may never have children at all!

I’m so lucky to be a mum and part of my job is sharing with my kids what a wonderful world we live in, especially the beautiful Central Coast.

Moving here from Sydney 3 years ago was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. Life was a bit more hectic than it needed to be for us in Sydney. Now we have the time and the space to appreciate more of life and all the attractions the coast has to offer, enjoying all the time we’ve saved not sitting in traffic!

There are some magical places to visit on the Central Coast of NSW and one we all particularly love is venturing out to Norah Head Lighthouse. Family time out to breathe in the fresh air, have a mini bush walk and look at the view in and around the amazing 112 year old lighthouse. There’s something about the view and the ocean that enlivens me.

There are tours where you can climb the 96 stairs to the top of the amazing and active lighthouse to see the spectacular 360-degree views from the bluestone balcony. The kids can learn about the duties of a lighthouse keeper before it was automated, and hear exciting tales of shipwrecks.

I’d love a longer visit one day so I can stay overnight at the Lighthouse Keeper’s Cottage. That way I could see both the sunrise and sunset on the same day at this breathtaking spot.

We sometimes grab a bite to eat or even just a coffee from The Ark cafe at Norah Head before making our way around the easy bush trail to the lighthouse.

Being a mother I think of myself as a navigational aid much like a lighthouse. I mark out the dangerous paths for my kids in the hopes that they make it through childhood unscathed.

As you can see from my resume, and if you’re a mum yourself, you’d know it’s truly one of the hardest jobs in the world both physically and mentally, however the rewards are immeasurable and cannot be put down on paper.

So when can I start?
