Being A Working Mom

I was originally going to title this post The Truth About Being A Working Mom, but then I realized that this is my life, my experiences. The way I feel may be completely different from the way others may feel about being a working Mom... Or maybe the opposite is true and they can relate to me. The point is, every mom is different. What works in my family may not work in yours. The important thing is not to judge one another and to remember that point. With that being said...


I guess I would have to say that being a working Mom has its advantages and disadvantages. I do like that I have the ability to get outside of the home and be around other adults. I work in a very large call center and I don't really know that many people, but it is nice to be able to do a little socializing. I like my boss a lot, she really seems to care about me and wants to help me succeed in my job. I am working in medical appointing now, but it is very different from anything I have ever done in the past. My professional background is in marketing and web design. There has been quite a learning curve and I have made some mistakes. I am not good at making mistakes.I feel like if I am going to be away from my babies, I than I want it to be for a good reason. It doesn't seem worth it to be away from my family to not be doing the best work I can do. That is just something I have to learn to get over. I don't have to be perfect all the time. It is okay to make a mistake. I have a good support system at work with my supervisor and union rep. The company I work for gives the option to work from home after a year as long as your stats are good. My goal is to be able to start working from home by Christmas. I think I will be much happier if I was able to work from home.  

The truth is, I really wish I could be a stay at home mom. I would love to be here all day with my boys. I feel like I miss so much time with them. They are growing up so fast and these are such important years for their development, I wish I was here more. I am so thankful that at least my Husband can stay home with them. I wish it was me, but I am happy they have him. It warms my heart to see how much they love him. They absolutely adore their Daddy, and he is very attached to them. As much as I love it, I admit that I often feel jealous and a little resentful that is not me that is home with them. I hate how much time I am loosing while I am at work or running errands. If I could have it my way of course I would be a stay at home mom, but at least I will have the option to work from home soon. Since I have to work, I feel very lucky to have the job I do. I get paid a decent wage and I am protected by the union. I have had a lot worse jobs so I need to remember to be thankful for what I have and not be jealous or resentful for the things I don't.

If I have said it once, I have said it a thousand times... I LOVE MY LIFE. I have a great husband and the best little baby dudes in the world! I have found that raising twins is not so different than a singleton, just a little bit louder (and a lot more fun!). I look forward to going through this journey together... SUPER MOMS UNITE!
