I haven't posted in days because Baby G has been sick :( She hasn't been herself since Thanksgiving. She had a head cold and is teething in top of it. Monday she drank a whole 3 1/2 ounces the whole day at daycare. I was so stressed when I picked her up and realized how out of it she was. She then started to develop a horrible cough...it was so bad that she would vomit. Tuesday morning I am all dressed for work, I get my 3 year old Lady M ready and woke Baby G. I managed to feed her & get her dressed. She seemed better to me at least not as congested. I went to put her in her car seat and she started coughing and vomited all over herself and me. Needless to say I called into work, brought Lady M to preschool and Baby G and I went to see the pediatrician. The doc said she had an upper respiratory infection. She was put on an antibiotic :( I felt so bad for her. Thank goodness she seems to be getting better each day.
Balancing my career and and being a Mommy can be so overwhelming. We don't have any family support close bye either so it makes it even more difficult. T's career isn't always as flexible as mine so he doesn't always have the time to take off when the kids are sick. Sometimes I feel like I being pulled in two separate directions. It's so hard to be at work when I am worried about my little ones. I wish one of us was able to stay home but that just isn't an option right now. T and I just try to support each other as much as possible and do the best we can for our girls. They are our world :)
Any other working Mommies out there who are struggling to juggle it all? I would love to hear about your trials and triumphs! I know you SAHM's have them too :) Feel free to share.
