Being Present

I think the hardest thing about being a working mom (and perhaps a non-working mom but I have no experience with that so I don’t know) is being present at the end of the day. Honestly, there are some evenings when I just want to surf the web and have N watch Backyardigans. And, it’s an easy solution but I know it’s wrong. OK, every once in a while it’s fine, but it’s easy to sink into habits and that’s not a good one.
I am really trying to pull myself out of the lull. I can tell how much N just thrives with engagement and once I get a smile, I am present. But, boy, there are days when it’s work! Why is it so hard to be a working mom sometimes?
