I love both of my jobs.
When I am at work I wish that I was working in the dealership five days a week. My current arrangement allows me to work from home 10-15 hours per week and I am in the store three days. I absolutely love being part of a car dealership. It is exciting every day. I am challenged with different projects and with the opportunity to learn new skills. There are so many interesting people, from my coworkers to our vendors to our customers. There is never a dull day.
When I am home with my girls I wish I could be home seven days a week. I didn't know how much I would love being a mother. I didn't know that I would enjoy watching every small action of their daily lives. Today Ana rolled over for the first time. It is adorable. I could watch it 1000 times and still think it is beautiful. I don't want to miss a single moment of their lives.
So right now I am searching for balance. I have to say no to extra work responsibilities so that I am not overwhelmed at home. And when I arrive to work, I have to trust that my babies are in good care so that I can focus on my job. I miss them like crazy.
|Who would want to leave these two goofballs?! ADORABLE!|
Moms who work: how did you feel when you went back to work? What did you do to make it easier to balance work and being a mommy?
