Aside

Life as a working mom is…

I ran across this post on Yahoo today and a few of them made me chuckle.

I’m sure some are relatable for all moms, regardless of their employment situation. I’m trying to get in the habit of posting at least once a week. So, I thought I’d share the article and add a few of my own. From just this week:

Life as a working mom is…

… praying the cold front doesn’t mean ice, snow, and school closures because you hate trying to figure out which parent is going to miss work to stay home.

… spending your lunch break running home to get formula to take to daycare because you missed seeing that they were out on the baby’s daily report.

… being grateful you have an extra coat in the car because you realize as you are walking in to work that the one you have on has a giant spot of spit up on it (and you have an outdoor site visit with clients later that morning!)

… driving to get takeout for dinner so that the baby can sleep just a little longer in the car seat after a day of bad napping. (But let’s be honest, I didn’t want to cook anyway!)

… getting a kick out of all the kids at daycare wanting to take a turn playing with my work ID badge.

… enjoying an impromptu lunch date with my hubby.

… being grateful for a job I enjoy that helps feed, clothe, and house our family as well as afford some fun stuff and luxuries along the way.
