I just finished back to back 12-hour shifts at work, and am running on 4 hours of sleep. I’m quickly learning just how busy the holidays can be when you work in a mall. Fortunately, I’m realizing as well that it is equally exciting as it is hectic. Despite my busy Saturday, I still managed to put in a good amount of quality time with the kiddo. We had dinner, talked and snuggled, I cut his fingernails and toenails, we prepared for bed, and I successfully got him to sleep by 9PM. I’m now hoping I finish his Filipino final exam reviewer in an hour so I can get some sleep. Tomorrow is bound to be another eventful day at work.
Yes, I am a working mom. It’s tough, but I love it.
