Working Mom Moments

Today I'm at Mile High Mamas sharing a tender moment between Little C and I . It was one of those moments where, for a second,  I did not want to be working mom. I wanted nothing more than to be at home with my little man and have nowhere to go.

Between you and me, I think I'm feeling this way a lot lately because I'm not crazy about my current gig any longer. In turn wearing my "working mom hat" becomes harder when I don't love the time I'm forced to spend away from my kids. I know I have the power to change this and I'm not feeling sorry for myself, it is just a fact.

I love working and my career is something I look forward to building on. But that doesn't mean hard days don't exist where soldiering on to work isn't tough. Thank goodness for the tender moments and the treasured time I do spend with my little loves. They are the moments that as of late get me through the day.

Can you relate? Do you find yourself daydreaming in a business meeting about your kids?

  1. I can sooooo relate! I spent 6 years at a job I loathed (for lack of a stronger word for how miserable this job made me), with a 45-minute commute away from my loved ones. Hang in there, girl. With time I know you will also find a good-fit job.

    1. Thanks, Nikki! Wow, a 45-minute commute would be hard! I hope I can find something soon to put a much desired "spring in my step" once again. Until then, I keep on keeping on. I appreciate your comment. :)

  2. Maybe it's the working mom's perspective, but I feel like moments like these are so much sweeter because we steal them in the quiet before work and in the reconnection after. It's tough, SO tough, to be away from our kids all day. Missing my guy right now!
