So sorry about the troubles you have with your mom. That is tough. I've been there with my own mother. We now have a good relationship (after years of struggle), but there was a time where it was not good.
I agree with you that being a parent to your boys is the most important job, money cannot replace that time you have with them and nobody should judge you for that.
I completely understand wanting to stay at home to parent the boys. I work. I have to. It is definately not my choice. Most of my friends are stay at homes and I am soo envious. Don't get me wrong, I know that it IS work! I just get sad thinking of all the firsts that I miss while I'm away. I want to be there to see everything! I have the next best thing though- My mom! She does home daycare and I work with her during the summer, so those months I get to see my Kaitlyn everyday! :)
I'm soo sorry to hear about your relationship issues with your mom. I've always been super close with my mom (we talk everyday) and I can't imagine how hard it must be to not have her as a constant source of support. I hope that someday you'll both be able to mend that relationship (although I know sometimes it can't be).
*I'm still keeping my fingers crossed about the job! Keep your chin up!
I am sorry to hear about your troubles with your mom. I have some similar issues with mine. What I'd like to say is we can choose our friends , but we cannot choose our blood relatives. And good or bad, understanding or not they always will be our parents...I wish I had the perfect relationship with my mom, but I know that will never happen. So I am trying to do the best I can... I know one day when she will not be around anymore...I will miss her and all the bad will be forgotten.
I hope you get the job...but if you are not...you get to spend some more time with your boys 24/7 which is a great thing too...
And I agree with you...being a mom is the most important job in the world. And one we don't need to interview for:).
Hope you feel better!
I really appreciate all the comments and feedback. Julia, I really liked that one line about not having to interview for the role of mother. Thank you for that one. I realize that I do already have a job; I'm a mom and that's what matters most to me above anything else. Merci.
