New Support Group

I am starting a new support group called, “I am a good mother with a full time job and doing the best I can”. 

There will be no support group meetings because we have no time, we will not meet in person, because we never get to leave our houses/offices.  Instead we will sit in our offices drinking a glass of wine (or stronger) reminding ourselves that we can only do what we can do and it’s ok that we don’t live and breathe our children 24 hours a day. 

We will understand that full time moms who make stupid comments like, “Do you think your son is having a hard time because you travel so much?” are simply jealous because they know we have fulfilling careers or that they are too dumb to realize how simplistic their lives are.  We will be able to share our work accomplishments with women who get it and don’t think we’re bragging or suggesting we’re more important.

We will celebrate our friends, who are stay at home moms, who help with our kids.  We cherish these women who provide balance to our crazy lives. 

Finally, we will try to keep ourselves from working until midnight to make up for the fact that we are going to try and watch the occasional t-ball practice or sneak in a quick run, to compete with the co-worker who is single, childless and doesn’t have wonderful friends to give them balance!
