Re-connecting

As a working parent I know sometimes it seems like the daycare person has more of a bond with your child then you do. That is why last week when Mateo and myself where both home sick, I felt like we had re-connected again, and I felt that sense of still being needed.

We both just snuggled on the couch, drinking lots of fluid and snacking, but mostly just sleeping. He would get on my lap and just curl up and fall asleep, and this happened several times, and I just felt like the luckiest person in the world.

Everyday stresses just melted away and I was in mom bliss.
It is moments like this that make you realize so many things are trivial and these are the moments that matter and make you feel loved and whole. I know it is cheesy to say but being a mom is the best job, despite a lot of hard work and no sleep.

Just thought I would share this moment, in case other mothers were feeling the same sometimes, when we get really busy with life and don't feel like we have a moment to reflect. So remember daycare people may form a connection with your child, but you are "mom" and will always be needed, so remember to be there when they do need you.

Look out for my next posting, to a link to time savings tips for working parents.
