Confessions of a Working Mom | Confesiones de una mama trabajadora

Español | English

– Español – 

Soy una mama que trabaja los 5 días de la semana en horario de oficina, me gusta mi trabajo aunque a veces tenga sus bajos y altos. Nunca me sentí tan culpable como el día que regrese a trabajar después de tener a los gemelos, realmente estaba feliz de volver a trabajar y retomar la rutina “Normal”.

A pesar de disfrutar lo que hago, las únicas cosas que me quitan el sueno son por ejemplo:

  • Que Ethan no quiera comer suficiente vegetales y por tanto no vaya al baño regularmente.
  • Que la fiesta de Thomas se acerca y aun no decidimos que personaje le gusta.
  • Que Noah ha pasado casi 3 semanas con resfriado en pleno invierno.
  • Me pregunto, si tendrán suficiente ropa fresca para la primavera y verano? Sera que los zapatos ya les apretan?
  • Alejandro y Yo tenemos que buscar tiempo para ver el capitulo que acaban de estrenar de la serie que nos gusta.
  • Donde pasaremos las próximas vacaciones?

Ese tipo de cosas son las que realmente tienen prioridad en mi mente. Y aunque eventualmente hay una que otra reunion en el trabajo para la que tengo que prepararme, nada de mi trabajo se adelanta, a menos que todos hayan cenado lo suficiente,  hayan tomado un baño,  tomen un vaso de leche antes de dormir, tengan la pijama puesta, hayamos leído un libro y este rendidos en su cama.

Así que muchas veces me toca preparar un power point a media noche, o enviar un email en la madrugada, pero soy feliz de saber que todos tienen lo que necesitan de mi. Ellos 4 son la prioridad en mi vida, crecerán rápido y se que extrañaré cada una de estas etapas.

I am a mom who works 5 days a week during business hours, I like my job even if it sometimes has its up and downs. I never felt as guilty as the day I returned to work after having the twins, I was so happy to go back to work and resume the “Normal” routine.

Despite enjoying what I do, the only things that don’t let me sleep are:

  • Ethan does not want to eat enough vegetables and therefore does not go to the bathroom regularly.
  • Thomas Birthday party is approaching and we still do not decide which character he likes.
  • Noah has spent almost 3 weeks with a cold in the middle of winter.
  • I wonder if they will have enough fresh clothes for spring and summer? Will the shoes already tighten?
  • Alejandro and I have to find time to see the chapter that has just been released of the show we like.
  • Where will we spend the next vacation?

Those kinds of things are the ones that really have priority in my mind. And although eventually there is a meeting at work that I have to be prepare for, none of my work get done at home, unless everyone has had enough dinner, they have taken a bath, have a glass of milk before going to sleep, they are wearing clean pajamas, we have read a book and they are as sleep on their beds.

So, there are many times I have to prepare a power point at midnight, or send an email at 1am, but I am happy to know that everyone has what they need from me. They are the priority in my life, they will grow fast that and I’ll miss these times.
