MOTHERS have confirmed they will pay anything to get a few hours away from their children each week.
Carolyn Ryan, a mother of one said: “It’s these formative first few years before the government childcare funding kicks in when I really will sell a kidney in order to have a morning without my toddler.
“I work two days a week and take home £12.60 a month after paying for childcare which I’m ok with, given the joy I feel when I spend time with adults who do not want to engage with me in any meaningful way.
“My toddler always wants to hold my hand while I answer his questions about stars. My colleagues gave up on learning years ago and that kind of stale energy is very rejuvenating to me.”
Nikki Hollis, a mother of two children under three agreed: “I get so tired of making magical memories and seeing the world fresh through their eyes.
“Sometimes I don’t want to marvel at a leaf – I want to stare dead-eyed at a screen until someone tells me there’s cake in the office kitchen.”
