Work at home Momma half 2: College begins

So I simply dropped my son off at Kindergarten. After 5 and a pair of/3 years working with him by my facet virtually on daily basis, now I’m right here within the quiet.

It’s surreal.

Earlier than his existence was identified, I knew I wished to keep away from sending him to daycare. I wished him to develop up extra like I did, with a stay-at-home mother. In immediately’s world, that could be a rarity if not downright inconceivable for a lot of. Even I couldn’t do it with out being a working mom. One of many main causes I joined MainStreet was as a result of I may make money working from home and provides him one thing resembling my upbringing.

The primary few years have been truly the simplest, the years the place you’ll be able to put the infant down they usually keep the place you place them. Frequent naps helped loads (each for him and for me).

He was my little secret at work. Only a few purchasers knew my son was at my facet whereas we have been on the telephone.

Then the pandemic got here and altered virtually the whole lot. My job didn’t change in any respect in the course of the pandemic, however everybody else’s did.

Abruptly, lots of people have been working from residence with their children proper subsequent to them. James didn’t have to be a secret anymore. I cherished that. Folks acquired it after I stated, “Maintain on a sec, my son is destroying one thing, I must examine on that.”

After a time, most individuals’s lives went again to “regular” however I stored working with James by my facet.

It acquired more durable the older he acquired. I didn’t anticipate that as a lot as I ought to have.

The mother guilt was heavy. James wished me to play with him on a regular basis and the phrases “Are you able to play with me but?” are very onerous to listen to all day.

He’s my world and I’m a really massive a part of his. Balancing his wants and my job was tremendous aggravating.

However you already know what?

I might not change it.

I did it. I achieved my aim of avoiding daycare and giving him the very best preschool years I may.

By a pandemic, a divorce, and a transfer, I did it. I didn’t do it completely, however excellent parenting is a pipe dream anyway.

In the present day my workplace supervisor went off to highschool for the primary time. I cried loads. Fortunately I may maintain it in till I acquired outdoors, and he couldn’t see.

I do know that is the very best factor and the correct factor right now in our lives. I can work whereas he’s at school and provides him extra consideration when he’s residence as a result of my work shall be principally accomplished.

I can’t assist however mourn the lack of my little child as he grows into the child he’s and shall be. However that’s what occurs with children. They by no means cease rising and I’ve cherished and can proceed to like each model of this tiny human I helped create.

I’m additionally very pleased with myself for doing it. 5 and a pair of/3 years glided by so quick and sluggish on the identical time. That chapter has closed, and now we open the following chapter.

I gotta say although, it’s too quiet right here with out the workplace supervisor….
