Today is Working Moms Connect on Kellys Korner Blog.
I really like to meet and connect with other Moms who work outside the home. Sometimes I feel like I am the only working Mama on the planet and everyone else has the luxury of staying at home.
I know that’s not true though!
Everyone does the best they can for their families and I’m doing what is best for mine.
I love my job and the Lord has blessed me with a job I really enjoy going to each day. I have made lots of friends and I like having the social interaction. I work 8-5 at a bank and I’ve been here for about 4 1/2 years now. I love it!
The best part is the end of each day. I look forward to picking up my boy and seeing his smiley face when he sees me walk through the door. “Mama Mama!!!”
We also are blessed that my mother/father/sister in law watch Connor each day and it’s family. I know he’s building great relationships with family members and he loves spending each day with his BFF Ellie (my niece).
DFW traffic is awful. I have to say it’s something I dread every.single.day. But again- it’s just something you get used to and it becomes day to day life. Sometimes we have meltdowns in the car. I do the best I can without my head popping off! Ha ha!
I’ve found that the classical music station is very relaxing and also calms Connor down.
I also always carry cookies and crackers in the car so he has something to munch on.
As you all know if you read my blog…..I am a crack addict. AKA=Starbucks addict.
I know this is a horrible, expensive habit. But it gets me through my day and I adore the new Valentines day cups that just came out! Cute eh???
Mama needs coffee to function. DAILY.
I’ve almost thought about changing my blog name to “Java Mama”
My computer at work….a constant reminder of how my booger has grown. I adore him.
God has blessed me in so many ways. A question I often get : “Don’t you feel like you are missing out on things with Connor?” I don’t feel like I am missing out, I feel like I treasure our time that much more. I’m able to contribute to our family finances and I feel good about that. We don’t have to live paycheck to paycheck and can take vacations and contribute to a savings account. I know that what I am doing now will effect our future later on. And Connor boy always knows I am his Mama and I love him no matter what!
