Work Matters (In Tha Muthahood)

Lisa Rice wrote this.

Here’s to all the working moms.
The ones receiving paychecks and the ones who won’t. Because let’s not kid ourselves, the mom changing diapers all day, cleaning up soggy Cheerios off the floor and cooking dinner with a toddler hanging on her leg, a newborn with colic screaming in the other room and a five-year-old needing help in the bathroom is working just as hard as the one delivering a presentation in high heels for the Board of Directors.

It’s just different work. Different kinds of stress.

I’ve been blessed with a flexible career. For that, I’m truly grateful. However, having an accommodating job sometimes means staying up way past everyone else’s bedtime to deliver what’s expected from me the next morning. Still, it’s nice having the option.

Forbes posted an interesting infographic along with an article about working moms. It confirms what I’ve known for a long time now. We can’t have it all.

Each of us chooses how to spend our time and talent. We must differentiate between needs and wants because when it’s all said and done, when we take our last breath, work and possessions won’t be holding our hand.

Relationships matter. Work matters. Moms matter.
I’m still trying to sort it all out.

Anita Renfroe, also known for her impressive Mom Song sung to the William Tell Overture has another doozy. Enjoy.

Oh, and Happy Mother’s Day!
