So I’m having a rough week. I’m trying to be strong and convince myself that being a working mom isn’t so bad, but it sucks. My heart hurts. I want to be home with my children so bad. My son is only 16 months and I so desperately want to be with him and snuggle during the day, watch his smiles and giggles, rather than just picturing it in my mind.
As I sit in my car on my lunch break I have no appetite and tears just keep running down my face. I have 17 more minutes to pull myself together and put on a happy face before returning to work.
So it’s time for a pep talk. I will review my “7 tips for working moms”, a blog post I’ve been working on for other moms in a similar position. Some of it I struggle to listen to myself but hope it will help someone, including me. Just thinking I only have 3.5 hours more of this work day until I’m with my babies.
It’s time to touch up my make up and listen to some comedy as I work, which is a perfect distraction as I try not to think about what makes me sad. If you’re in a similar position just know you are not alone. We are in this together and I know what you are going through.
