Sleeping Baby, So Sweet

C was asleep tonight by the time I got home from work.  This is probably the worst I've felt about being a working mother.  I honestly try not to think about it too much.  There are positives and negatives in any choice we make.  For the most part, I'm happy with mine.  I really miss him while I'm at work and I am acutely grateful for every moment I get to spend with him.  Part of me wishes he'd wake up, the rest of me knows if he does wake up, he won't go to bed until 2 at the earliest.  He was up at 3:30 this morning and didn't want to go back to sleep or play alone.  It has been a long day, which probably doesn't help my disposition.  Being a working mom is hard.

  1. Hugs! It is so hard :( Is he your first? I cried and cried and was always telling my husband how sad I was. I wish I had an answer for you. Quality over quantity - remember that.
