WHAT existence AS A WORKING mother IS fairly LIKE
For the report, I keep in mind any mom a working mom. However these of us who hold down jobs with bosses (rather then our youngsters) and advantages (that aren’t kisses and hugs) face some one-of-a-kind challenges. This is what life as working mom is to me, and to many.
Life as a working mom is …
… panicking when your youngster walks in to your bed room to wake you up on a Monday morning and says, topic-of-factly, “Mommy! It’s 7:45! Don’t you have got to stand up?”
… hanging your hair right into a low ponytail, once again — the unofficial hairstyle of working mothers far and wide.
… questioning, once again, what your sitter thinks about you as you run out the door and she says, “You forgot your cellphone/iphone/purse/head!”
… arguing together with your husband, on a morning when your little one is in poor health, over who’s going to take off from work (read: who has the crazier day at work) to get him to the pediatrician.
