I've said it before - Stay At Home Moms have my admiration. I just don't feel that I could be a very good SAHMom.
On the other hand, being a Working Out Of The House Mom has some major disadvantages -- like when the work world and the Mom world collide.
Case in point:
An event at the school for Sweet Pea and her class. Something she is looking forward to. Something I was able to attend when Punkin was involved. Something we worked on a project this weekend for. The event is planned for Friday.
At work, we have an all day meeting coming up. I take care of the meeting room set up, taking the notes, and arranging the catering for the event. There are typically about 50 people in this day-long meeting. The meeting is set for Friday.
Fun "Clown" event at the school.
All day meeting at work.
Responsibilities are tugging at me from two different directions.
With the Boss dealing with stressors, I really really really don't want to ask for two hours off work for any reason. He is, under regular circumstances, a fair and generous boss. (And no one wants to sit in this meeting taking notes for me)
I will put on my big girl panties and do the right thing, but I really do not like having to make choices like this. Not at all. Someone is always "disappointed" no matter what.
