I’m a working mom.
I am also a FULL TIME MOM. I will ALWAYS be a FULL TIME MOM.
I might not be physically with my child but I am always there. I am ALWAYS the mom – full time – even when I’m at my office job. I am there.
In the fall my daughter will be starting high school. I’ve worked full time since she was 11 weeks old.
I challenge ANYONE to be as close to their child as I am to mine or to have done a better job at parenting.
People are always telling me “You and your daughter are so close.” Indeed we are and that is no accident. She is a happy, successful and well adjusted child with a good sense of humor. She is independent. She is popular. She does well in school. And she looks forward to a hopeful future full of possibilities. She has the world in her hands. AND she is proud of her mom – and her dad who also works full time (and is a FULL TIME DAD).
The same goes for 99% of the working moms I know.
There is no such thing as a part time mom. Period. End of story. Enough.
