“Mommy you work too much. Can you try to spend more time with me?”
...mom guilt is a real thing. To all the working moms out there, I see you. I see how hard you’re working to provide. I see how you can’t always be two places at once. I see how hard it is for you to miss something important. I see you trying to be the best mom and the best employee at the same time. I see the hurt in your heart when you hear phrases like I heard tonight. I see you.
I know I’m making the right choices for my kids and my family. But that doesn’t mean it’s always easy. Nothing in life is meant to be easy, and we are all on different paths. Mom guilt is real but it comes in all shapes and sizes and it will be there whether you’re working, staying at home or balancing both. Remember that.
Keep on keeping on ladies. You are doing amazing and your kids see how hard you’re working. They see you. They may not always have the right words but they know how hard you’re working for them. Don’t ever forget that. ✨
