So I simply dropped my son off at Kindergarten. After 5 and a couple of/3 years working with him by my aspect nearly daily, now I’m right here within the quiet.

It’s surreal.

Earlier than his existence was identified, I knew I needed to keep away from sending him to daycare. I needed him to develop up extra like I did, with a stay-at-home mother. In right now’s world, that may be a rarity if not downright unattainable for a lot of. Even I couldn’t do it with out being a working mom. One of many main causes I joined MainStreet was as a result of I might work at home and provides him one thing resembling my upbringing.

The primary few years have been really the simplest, the years the place you’ll be able to put the infant down they usually keep the place you set them. Frequent naps helped quite a bit (each for him and for me).

He was my little secret at work. Only a few purchasers knew my son was at my aspect whereas we have been on the cellphone.

Then the pandemic got here and altered nearly every thing. My job didn’t change in any respect throughout the pandemic, however everybody else’s did.

All of a sudden, lots of people have been working from dwelling with their children proper subsequent to them. James didn’t have to be a secret anymore. I liked that. Folks bought it once I stated, “Maintain on a sec, my son is destroying one thing, I have to verify on that.”

After a time, most individuals’s lives went again to “regular” however I stored working with James by my aspect.

It bought more durable the older he bought. I didn’t anticipate that as a lot as I ought to have.

The mother guilt was heavy. James needed me to play with him on a regular basis and the phrases “Are you able to play with me but?” are very arduous to listen to all day.

He’s my world and I’m a really giant a part of his. Balancing his wants and my job was tremendous demanding.

However you realize what?

I’d not change it.

I did it. I achieved my purpose of avoiding daycare and giving him the perfect preschool years I might.

By way of a pandemic, a divorce, and a transfer, I did it. I didn’t do it completely, however excellent parenting is a pipe dream anyway.

In the present day my workplace supervisor went off to high school for the primary time. I cried quite a bit. Fortunately I might maintain it in till I bought outdoors, and he couldn’t see.

I do know that is the perfect factor and the correct factor presently in our lives. I will work whereas he’s at school and provides him extra consideration when he’s dwelling as a result of my work will likely be principally achieved.

I can’t assist however mourn the lack of my little child as he grows into the child he’s and will likely be. However that’s what occurs with children. They by no means cease rising and I’ve liked and can proceed to like each model of this tiny human I helped create.

I’m additionally very happy with myself for doing it. 5 and a couple of/3 years glided by so quick and gradual on the similar time. That chapter has closed, and now we open the following chapter.

I gotta say although, it’s too quiet right here with out the workplace supervisor….
