Confessions of a Working Mom
I love these playgroups that I go to. Megan loves ’em. It seems like the kid interactions that she gets, makes her learn new things, fast. I feel like by letting her play with other kids, she’s opening up doors and she’s growing right before my eyes.
The only thing is most of these playgroups are for Stay At Home Moms (SAHM). And I got burned a few times when these SAHM want to keep to their SAHM groups. What difference does it make if I go to work? I still want my baby to have all the best things she can get, just like any SAHM.
I had met a really nice mom “Michelle” with her baby “Gabby”. Megan and Gabby are the same age and were already hugging and holding hands. Michelle and I were chatting and just hanging out. About an 1 later, both babies were tired. I don’t blame them. I was tired just chaperoning them. I’m leaving with Megan, and I handed Michelle my business card with email and phone. I told her, “Call me or email me. Let’s meet some time and get our kids together.” She looked at the card, and I saw the look in her eyes change like “Humm, you work?”
Wow, big difference. It’s been 2 months, and I haven’t heard from Michelle. So sad. I know it’s my business card. Should I make Mommy cards? LOL… I heard of these cards that mom’s hand out with their info, just in case people need to contact them.
