I'm also a Mommy. And now that's it's summer, I still make worksheets for my son to do coz I don't want him glued to the TV the whole day. I also find activities for him to do - bring him to his basketball clinic, soccer clinic too, birthday parties, play dates and yes, I've also enrolled him in the McDonald's Kiddie Crew. It's his second time and he liked the first time, so I enrolled him again.

And after an event, I'm always in a hurry to go home because I have more emails to write and send. I am a working Mom. I'm luckier than other working Moms because I can work from home. I know I'm blessed with what I have. My own Mama was working full time outside of the home when I was growing up. No one would bring me to summer activities, I remember I just stayed home summers of my childhood and books were my escape. I did go visit my Lola and cousins a lot back then, so I was never bored.

Because of that traffic violation, the meeting was delayed. I planned on going home by 2pm since it was my little boy's first day at Kiddie Crew which starts at 3pm. I was only able to leave at 2:45. I got 8 missed calls from the little one, I can almost hear his disappointment. I wanted to cry from guilt! I got home at 3:45 and dropped him at McDo 10 mins after. After I parked, I followed him in and saw that he was happily getting drinks from the vendo and helping at the counter. Major heartbreak was averted, thankfully.

You see, my daily life is like that. I struggle to give him my time and also have time to do my job. He'd go to me for something and I would often times have to tell him to wait a bit. I speak to my friends at the office who are Moms like me and we go through the same thing. We'll just have to manage this better, and accept that we're always in a race :D
