I Am A Working Mom

I am a working mom.

I have some days when I'm glad to get away, and some days when I miss Monkey with every cell in my body.

My heart breaks when I hear his rattly-sick-toddler voice.

I probably have hundreds of blurry pictures of Monkey, just because he likes the flash.

For as long as I could, I collected my pumping paraphernalia twice a day, found a conference room, and willed my body to produce food for my baby.

I am inordinately proud of him when he's excited about something new, like watching dinosaur documentaries or learning how to fist bump.

I look at my son and wonder what kind of big kid, teenager, and adult he will be.

Sometimes, I get jealous when I see a mommy's group at the park by my work.

I wonder how he's doing during the day, and hope that he's napping/eating/playing well.

I struggle with how to explain that Daddy's on a business trip, so he won't be home when we get home.

Sometimes it annoys me when we drive past the park on the way home, and he asks to go on the swings. Sometimes, the weather is nice so I tell him it's a good idea, and we stop for a while. And I love him all the more for being so darn clever.

I wish we lived closer to Monkey's grandparents, because it makes me sad that he doesn't know them well.

I (usually) wish I could stay home a couple days a week just to spend time with Monkey.

I worry that Monkey will pick up our bad habits and not our good ones.

I am a working mom.

But most of all, I am a mom.
