Being a working mom...

...Sucks! I seriously HATE being away from my baby. After 3 days of work, I told them that it wasn't working out. I said I like the job (insurance and investments) but that I missed my baby too much, so unless I can work part time I can't stay. We are going to have a meeting about it on Tuesday and see if part time is an option. I understand that every one is different. Some moms need that time away to re-group. And I totally get that. But I just can't do it. I hate that someone else is with my baby more than me. Anyway I decided to follow my heart. I will never regret being with my baby. So... anyway what's new with y'all? Here's a pic of my baby and her Dad at the park.

  1. I can't blame you. I couldn't do it either. If you follow your gut, you can't go wrong. You'll make it work somehow. Way to go, Mama! I think you made an excellent decision.

  2. I wish I could financially make the decision you did. I still play the lottery, but my saving grace is that I'm a teacher and have summer's off. Good for you to go with your gut.

  3. I can not blame you either, I work 2 days a week and I still miss her like crazy! You will not regret this one :)

  4. I don't blame you at all. It is hard. I struggled going back to work once I had my daughter. I get so much time off with the school that it is such a blessing, but every time that one of my breaks ends I am forced to say good bye once again. Both her and I struggle to find a routine once again. I leave for work, and she is sleeping. I get home from work, and she is napping. It is so rough and if we could afford for me not to work, I would do it in a heart beat.
