Working momma

This post is linked to Kelly's Corner - SUYL: Working Moms

I am a working mom.
I have a 3 year old and another one on the way.
I work 40+ hours a week.
I leave the house at 7:00am and am lucky if I get back home by 6:00pm.
My husband works night shift for the local sheriff's department: 7:00 pm to 7:00 am.

My house isn't always clean.  It is usually cluttered!
There are dishes in the sink.
We don't always get home cooked meals.
There have been clean clothes in my living room since Sunday.

BUT ....

There is always time for soccer practice.
For reading books and scratching backs before bedtime.
For sitting on the couch watching Toy Story 3 for the 11th time that week.
And for making racetracks outside on the sidewalk for cars.


  1. Wow, I only work in a "real" job part time now, and the clothes in my living room are dirty! :-)

  2. Love this post. It just goes to show that it's so important to make time for the small things whether you're a working mom or now. Stopping by from Kelly's Korner ~~Andrea
