It’s one of those days. I was out all last week from work, and now I can’t catch up, and I sent Mae to the nanny’s early, and I was in such a rush that I forgot to buckle the second buckle on the car seat, so I felt like a shitty mom, and I have about ten unanswered emails from students and thirty ungraded papers, and Mae was crying when I left her, and no one is getting what they need.
I need coffee and a hug.
I know I’ll get my head above water in a few days, but right now it’s all the hard things, all at once.
Working moms, how do we do this? Remind me.
