Working Mom Guilt is Real
I want you to know, that while I write about the wonderful parts of being a working mother, and the fact that I really do love the direction that my life has taken in the past year, there are still some downsides. Working mom guilt is a harsh reality.
Nothing, no nothing, breaks a mother’s heart more than the plaintive cries of her wee one saying, “Mommy, I just want you..”
Because she is not lying.
She just wants mom.
And on some level, when I hear those words, I’ve failed my child in some way. I feel guilt. Deep, aching, working mom guilt.
