Working Mom

I’m a working mom with 5 children so mornings are especially hard. I’m up at 6 am and so is Presley. I give her blankie and she watches while I shower and get ready. One and or all of the kids start getting up and things get crazier. Early mornings like these make being a working mom harder. That and the guilt I feel for leaving them. I know working is the best choice for me and my family. I know they will benefit in all kinds of ways from having a working mom. I know they are in great hands when I leave. It still is emotional for me to walk out the door while my kids are clinging to me. I make sure to reassure them I will be coming back and give lots of kisses and hugs, then remind myself working is a positive decision and with 5 children sort of don’t have a choice!
