Being a stay at home mom (parent) is hard. It is all I have known since we brought Pickle into the world 4.5 years ago. Every minute since, are the minutes I treasure, even when I am stressed.
I know it’s only my second day, but being a working mom is also hard.
It is hard being away from your kids. It is hard being away from your partner. It is hard being away from your safe place.
I don’t know about day time shift people, but boy does it really suck coming home to a quiet house.
At least when my husband comes home from work, he is greeted by us as we are excited to see him. He gets to spend time with us and help put the kids to bed.
I got home tonight and everyone was sleeping.
I know I can be emotional, but I just wanted to cry.
My feet are throbbing, my back is sore, and I am beginning to wonder how I am going to handle this. Working late multiple nights a week. Can I do it and still maintain my sanity?
I cannot lie, I was selfish and tried to wake Pickle up just to get a hug from him. He wouldn’t budge though. 😢
I know this is only going to help us in the long run, but the getting there is really going to suck. 😫😭
