Working moms

How many of us are working moms? This week was my first week back at work. I have to say, this has probably been the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life. I have been a blubbering crying mess pretty much all week. Anytime someone would ask me about my baby I would smile and go into great details, showing off pictures, as tears were running down my face. I have been so lucky and fortunate enough that my sister and mom are watching my baby girl while my husband and I are at work. And they are probably the ones that I trust the most watching her. However, I've been struggling with the fact that I'm not the one who is with her the majority of the day. For the moms who are working, I give you great props and applause (and yes I give great props and applause to stay at home moms too, that's not easy either). If I had a choice I would honestly probably stay at home, until she at least was in school. I'm hoping and praying that something will change in the next couple of months that way I am able to stay home more with her. I miss my baby girl for the 12, 13 hours that I'm away from her.

    Malinda ~ I have the best of both worlds... I work from home! i am so glad I get to do this and hope the fun never ends...because I cherish the moments that I get to spend with my children.... something I would miss if i worked outside of the home!
      I know how u feel and I'm gone just 7 hours!!! I think you will find it does get easier but that blubbery feeling and guilt and ache won't go away, it just changes into something else more manageable and less intense.
      My kids are 7 and 9 and I still get emotional on the long days.
      Hang in there. Once you get settled into the routine and see her every day after work and see that she's happy and well taken care if, it will subside.
