Thoughts of a 20-something

Here’s to the working mom 

Here’s to the working mom. You know… the ones who CHOOSE to work. Not just because they need the money but because they need the job.

To the mom who knows she’s a better person for having her job…

To the mom who knows that the daycare she’s chosen was the right choice….

To the mom who feels guilt for leaving their child…but knows it will be okay…

To the mom who is a role model to women everywhere…

To the mom who spends her lunch away from coworkers because she’s pumping for her child….

To the mom who rushes out of work daily to pick up her children so she doesn’t miss another minute….

To the mom who misses all the SAHM playdates because they’re midday on a Tuesday…

To the mom who skips the gym because it means more time away from her child….

To the mom with a messy bun, bags under her eyes and a slightly “off”outfit because you were just too tired to pull it together after a long night of fussing…

To the mom who never hesitates to take a sick day for her child but shows up and pushes through when she herself is sick…

To the mom who worries about missing all the firsts and giving those special moments to someone else…

I see you. I’m proud of you.

I am you.

Here’s to you. Here’s to the sacrifices you make and the strength you show. You are amazing. You’re making the right choice for your family.
