Becoming A Mom & Change in Perspective/Approach @ Work?

Any working Mamas think that becoming a mom has changed their perspective about work? How about changes in how you approach your work?

For sure!! I told myself I would NEVER be a stay at home mom! But as soon as I had him I knew I wouldn’t wanna go back to work. So I’ve become a work from home mom and love it! Can’t believe how much he’s changed my views on things lol

Yep, I thought I would go back to work ASAP but I asked to reduce my hours and now I only work part-time the most valuable thing in my life is spending time with my child I don’t want to miss a step

I’m a full time working single mom and I’ll tell you right now it sucks cheese balls going to work every day most days the only time I see my kids is when I take them to school and daycare and it sucks but finding the balance between work and home is important I used to be the person they would call if someone missed work and I’d go in for extra but now it’s all about the kids doesn’t matter what’s going on at work you’ve got to remember unfortunately in this world almost everyone is replaceable to a major corporation so don’t miss time with your kids for a job that can replace you that’s why even though I’m a pharmacy technician and will be able to find a job anywhere I still have a side business (thrive) because some day soon I’m going to stop missing days with my kids so that we can have food and a place to stay

If anything being a mother has made me better at work! When I went back I took my job more seriously and ended up moving up in the company very quickly. I learned patience with my daughter which helped me with patience at work with clients and associates. I became more even tempered and determined!

I was a die-hard career woman before baby. I didn’t think I could ever do the full-time housewife thing. After having my little girl, though, I lost my job and am loving it almost too much. Being her mom is all I want to do all day lately, and the fact that I need to find another job is killing me. I’m now looking for remote jobs that I can do so I don’t have to leave her.
