Working mamas

Curious... do you feel like being a mother has made you better or worse at your job? I feel like I’ve learned to be way more efficient so I can make it back in time for school pickup and bedtime. Also feel like I have a new appreciation for patience at work. Would love to hear your stories!

For those moms that transitioned to working from home what is it that you do?

Worse. As a whole, I like the organization I work for, I like my coworkers and I like my position. But I like my son more, so missing him all day is very distracting and makes it really hard to focus on my work and to stay motivated as all I can think about is how much I want to go home to see him. I used to have a great memory/mental filling system and great organizational skills, but as much as a skeptic as I was before becoming a mom, I now think mom brain is a real thing and that I have it big time as I can't keep track of anything or stay on track for anything liked I once could. Throw in the fact that I pump at work, so that takes time put of my day while I'm there as well as adds an extra level of stress and extra time dealing with all the pump parts there and at home to prepare them to being with me and that I always breastfeed him before I leave for the day, which often makes me late for work.

I constantly feel like a hot mess like I never have and like I'm just sucking at my job now. It really frustrates me because I used to ROCK at my job and prided myself on that fact, so it's been a really hard adjustment. I've only been back 2 months, I really, really hope it gets better, I can't imagine this being a long term funk.

I used to feel guilty but then started my own business and now I work around my child’s schedule. I started a business with young living. Time freedom is so important to me now.

I must admit I felt like a horrible mom when I worked my last corporate job 😔 I know I was doing my best but I hated the day my son told his teacher that my favorite thing to do was “work” 😭 I decided to make a change and work from home. Best decision ever made. Now I can do so much better and not be a cranky always in a rush mom. There’s so much more joy in our home now. I definitely learned a lot through this though. Most mamas want to be home with their babes and still make a difference and follow their dreams 🙌💕 I love that soon I’ll retire my husband too so we can travel as a family. Working from Home has been life changing for us and I love all that I learn and the better person I am when I’m my best me. Always improving something for my family and I. Feels good.

I see work as my break from my little one. But when I’m at work I’d rather be out doing stuff with her. At my past job I would make random excuses of why I needed to leave, and I would go pick her up and we would do things. Now I don’t have that liberty with work. 😔
