WONDERFUL THINGS ABOUT BEING A WORKING MOM:
(Eyes on your own list, SAHMs)
I get time in the adult world.
I get to do something I’m passionate about.
My house is still clean when I get home.
My kids get to do cool things at school and daycare that I don’t have to plan, execute, or clean up after.
I know that there are others who love my child… and they aren’t just the relatives that would love him anyway.
I love to see my child’s excitement when I drop him off with the babysitter. He has fun there!
My kids get to interact in healthy ways with other children.
I get little gifts of artwork and surprises from my kids when I get home.
When I’m away I have personal space (nobody at work comes into the bathroom while I’m in it)
I know that I am providing for my family.
I am filled with love when I see my kids at pick-up time
I am able to listen and be more in tune with what they say and do since I value the time more.
I get to come home to kisses and cuddles and stories.
I am a mom and I get to love and care for my children
