I was at a school science fair over the weekend, and found myself in the middle of a group of women swapping vacation plans left and right.
"We're going to Mexico. Where are you going?"
Finally, one said, "What about you, Julie?"
I shrugged. "Um ... I'm going to WORK."
At times like these, it sucks to be a working mom. Everyone else is jetting off here, there, everywhere and you're stuck behind your desk, doing the same old, same old.
I love my job and feel incredibly fortunate to have it, especially in this economy. I am also lucky my husband will be home with my kids next week instead of having to put them in daycare. But when my husband and kids calling me to say they're at the beach, the Science Center, or Disney, I can't help but feel a twinge of guilt ... and envy. I would love to be there, too, and I can't help but feel I'm missing out.
SAHMs, enjoy your spring break with your kiddos. I'd love to be in your shoes, if only for a week.
