Growing up is about finding the time to relax, read and listen to music and watch movies, said Jill, a mother of two who lives in the Toronto area.
“It is very hard for us,” she said.
Jill said she and her husband spent the first three months of their marriage “not really doing anything.”
But they were so tired after being away for so long that they had a hard time staying motivated to go to work.
“I feel like we’re in the middle of this, which is a bit depressing,” she told the National Post.
She said she has always loved the outdoors, but was not sure if she could live without her children.
Jill’s husband also struggles to find the time.
“You can’t really do anything at the moment,” he said.
He said he is not a big fan of watching movies and TV shows, but enjoys listening to music on headphones and relaxing by watching YouTube videos.
Jill is concerned about the lack of quality childcare and how that will affect her children’s development.
“The best thing I can do is make sure that my kids get the best possible education, so that they are ready for the world,” she explained.
Jill and her wife are planning a trip to the Bahamas next month to visit their daughter, who was born last year.
Jill worries about what will happen if the couple are unable to return to Canada.
“If I have to take them back, I will definitely miss them a lot,” she lamented.
