Derby Day at the kids’ school today was probably completely normal for everyone, but AMAZING for me!!!
Being a working mom since my kids were born has meant missing a lot of Derby Days and other fun kid school things.
As a new mom, I quickly went back to work a gut-wrenching 8 weeks after my son was born, and my C-section hadn’t fully healed physically & emotionally. My husband has stepped in as the Best Dad in the World many times, so I’m thankful that our kids have had a parent when they’ve needed us to be there.
But many times, I wanted to do Derby Days and just couldn’t.
Today was different! What made this an incredible and extra-special Fun Friday was the fact that being my own boss has blessed me with the flexibility to be at more events, like today’s Derby Day.
My 6 year old daughter loved having me there…and kept giving me hugs and high fives! ?
My heart is full of joy and hope for a future with better life balance. I’m definitely thankful for such a Fun Friday & hope you can find the balance that works for you!
