WAHM: W Stands for Witness

15 Feb

being a work-at-home-mom
is not for the faint-hearted
you don’t know what demanding means
until you have started

waiting is not in a child’s vocabulary
she has perfect timing
she knows exactly when i’m busy
and immediately asks for something

but if this is the price
then i’m willing to pay
nothing beats raising you myself
and seeing your eyes light up every day

leaving my higher-paying job
and with my income smaller
i can’t give you as many presents
anyway, my gift of time is way better

to have a first-hand account
of how your days go by
is worth the risk letting go
and bidding my safe, stable job goodbye
