Have a Great Weekend & Mom's Day!

It's been such a long week and I'm so happy that we made it to the finish line! Spring kinda sprung (though we've had a bout of chilly rain the last two days), I had a ladies night out and got to spend a little time with my love bug in the park. On the flip side, I've been plagued with commuting and daycare woes for the last week and so I'm really quite ready to turn my brain off and have a bit of a break this weekend.

We'll be on the go as usual, and will be celebrating Mothers Day with both of our moms on Sunday. I'm happy to do whatever, as long as I get to be with my Sweet P for the day.

Part of the strife I feel as a working mom is this insatiable feeling that I never get enough time with my daughter. It's so hard to be a working mom; there is no doubt about it, and it's something that I grapple with daily. My feelings on being a full-time working mom is a topic for another time, but it occurred to me as I began writing this post that it's been just about a year since I've been back to work after having Penelope. I feel proud and sometimes in disbelief that I've made it a whole year. If being a mom is one of the hardest things I'm doing, then being a working mom is right up there on the top of the scale too. And so I'm ready to celebrate the moms in my life and maybe give myself a bit of a break too.

There's nothing easy about being a mom, whether you work, stay home or do a bit of both. And so I wish a very very happy Mother's Day to every single one of the moms out there...the working moms, stay-at-home moms, soon to be moms, want to be moms, trying to be moms  and all other caregivers out there. It's a journey that I'm proud to be on with all of you!



Have a great weekend my friends!
