The Working Mom Hat: Early Meetings

I’m rushing out the door this morning for an early meeting. Baby isn’t on schedule to wake up until I’m out the door and on the freeway. I’ll sneak into her room and give her a kiss, but I won’t be able to see that beautiful smile this morning. Her smile jump starts my day better than any Starbucks coffee can, so today will be hard for mommy.
Thus … when she woke up crying last night – I did what all the books say not to do. I picked her up, cradled her in my arms, and soothed her back to sleep myself. We rocked. I sang. She snuggled. Sometimes, the moments in the middle of the night are our time to catch up. I know it sounds silly – but it’s a magical moment that I selfishly look forward to.
