How I Learned to Balance Career and Motherhood
It hasn't been easy. But it's been worth it.
The day I became a mother, everything changed. My son was the most beautiful baby I had ever seen. As I held him, his dark brown eyes—open so wide—seemed to look directly into mine. It was if our souls connected and he was searching for the answers to life. It was 4:00 in the morning, and I had just gone through seven hours of labor. I was exhausted—maybe even delirious. Even still, it was the happiest day of my life.
Like many new mothers, though, I quickly realized that now I was responsible for another person’s life. A tremendous burden overcame me.
It was my first Oh Sh*tmoment as a mother.
Two and half years later, it happened again. I was so excited before my daughter came into my life. I had two years of practice and knew what to expect, so the anxiety was minimal. That is, until she came on that Sunday morning around 10:00. It was like deja vu. As I held her in my arms, her eyes were wide open and she stared into my soul—just as her brother did two and half years before—looking for the answers to life. Another Oh Sh*t.
