How do I cope being a mom and working full time?

I went back to work when my daughter was 7 months and I'm unsure how to do everything (she's now 1 years old) by that I mean I feel terrible when I can't sit and play with with her because I work in a bar so don't see her much (not nearly enough) but I need the money..... Help a momma out?

Being a working mom has been the hardest. I’m a working part-time with a special needs child and it’s been insanely difficult to manage both😫😫😫

Really glad this thread is here - I’m a new mom to my first child and have so many goals so that I can help provide for him. I love seeing the posts that are genuine encouragement! Keep it up ladies 🌟

Dont beat yourself up. I worked 3 jobs and saw my kids for breakfast only. You do what you have to and just make sure to take a little time to enjoy the moments. Make some time to do little things and thats what they'll remember. Kids don't hold it against you for making sure they are well taken care of. Just do your best to make them feel loved and special. Thats what they remember. And they grow up to appreciate the type of mother they had who did anything to give them everything.

It’s a challenge for sure, I went back to work a few months ago when my son was 2 mo old and it made me be grateful for every second we have together. It’s not always easy but mom guilt is real whether you are at home with your kids or not. I’m sure you’re doing the best you can! It’s worth it to find something you can really expand and a company that you can work for that’s flexible. Keep your head up and heart open ☺️
