As a mom, working can be one of the biggest challenges we face. Some mom choose to be a stay at home mom, while others choose to go back into the workforce and for some it’s not a choice at all, but a necessity. Either way it can be one of the most difficult decisions we have to make.
So why does it have to be so hard? I know for me it is difficult because I feel like all I do is take care of other people’s children all day and not my own. I feel like a failure, because I am exhausted at the end of the day and sometimes just do not feel like doing anything. When all he wants to do is play with me. It is hard. I just need to remember to appreciate the time I do give him. To enjoy every moment that is given, but to realize it is okay to be tired. It is okay to feel like you do not want to do anything after. To just want to jump on the couch and binge a trashy tv show. It is okay.
I know my son loves me even if I am sitting on the couch and watching him play, just as much as if I took him to the park. The balance you create will help you not only be apart of it, but to keep your sanity. Just remember you can not do everything, so just take a moment to enjoy what you can do.
