Hardest Job Ever ...

being a mommy.
It's the hardest and most rewarding. I love being a mommy I have ever sense she was a little bean in my tummy.
I have found it to be harder than ever right now. I just started this new job and I'm away from her for 5 or 6 hours a day. I hate being away, I feel like I'm missing things with her. The hardest part is I have to work nights some days. I have only been away from her at night a few times. I hate not being able to lay her down in bed and give her good night kisses.
When I seen my work hours for next week I wanted to cry. Well I held it in until last night when everyone was in bed. I feel really bad, even though I know having the extra money will help her out a lot too. I feel like I'm being selfish in a way. I'm her mommy, I'm suppose to be the one laying her down and kissing her good night. Yes my hubby/her daddy will be doing that, but I feel I should be here too. I have no control over my working hours right now, so there's nothing I can do but suck it up.
How do other working mothers do this? It's so hard.

I feel your pain. I work full time plus and have both my boys in daycare full time. It SUCKS! But unfortunately I don't have much of a choice. Just make the most of the time you do have!

I know what you mean - at work, aside from management, I'm one of the only 3 reliable employees we have right now and because we're soooo understaffed I'm working a good 4-5 days a week and I HATE it. I only wanted to work 2-3 days a week just so I had a reason to get up and out during the week and make a little extra money for us so I felt like I was contributing but this... this just sucks. Lately because they've been working me so much I feel like Jay spends more time with his grandma than he does with us (hubby works 2 jobs and during the week he's only home 2-3 hours in the evening, with a little more time on Friday and Saturdays and Sundays I told them not to schedule me because that's the only day we get to spend as a family it seems as hubby has the whole day off).

It just really sucks and I really hope we hire more seasonal people for the upcoming holiday season that are competent and can stay on after too as I'm really getting tired of working as much as I am =(
