From A SAHM: I’m In Awe Of Working Parents During This Pandemic

Posted On Sep 25, 2020 By admin With Comments Off on From A SAHM: I’m In Awe Of Working Parents During This Pandemic

Dear Working Parents,

I’m so impressed by you.

I’m not one of you.

Not “technically,” I guess.

I’m a writer, so I kind of have a job, but then again, I oblige no money doing it( yet ), so I don’t think it’s fair to compare my work to your 9-5, 7-7, 10 -8, or whatever full or part-time hours you put in.

But I encounter all that you are doing


to tend to your

non-living and living responsibilities ;P TAGEND

your responsibilities that pay the proposals and your other young human ones that are the reason those statutes are so high.

I see you

working outside of your home,

working from inside your home,

working while you cook,

while you jam-pack lunches,

while your child cleanses,

while they do school wield,

and while they sleep.

I see you

taking announces,

making announces,

and missing important calls.

I see you

worried about your child’s return to brick and mortar.

I see you struggling to keep up with their at-home e-learning zoom schedule and workload.

I see you letting them return to sports.

I see you missing their sports because of deadlines that can’t be missed so that you can earn that paycheck that pays for those sports.

I see you avoiding indoor openings and parties because your fear and health risks devastates you.

I see you taking on this pandemic and the incredibly difficult decisions us guardians have been required to make because of it,

with little time,


and alternatives,

and nailing every aspect of what it means to be a stellar mother who is providing for their child in every gumption of the word.

I’m a stay-at-home mom and riding out this virus with three varied-aged, big personality-donning children is a feat and it’s exhausting.

But, possibly not as trying and taxing as “ve had to” do the same AND work.

This isn’t me quarrelling that mothers without activities have it easy,

it’s really me genuinely and rightfully acknowledging that those who are working right now,

and raising children during the coronavirus pandemic,

like you,

have it quite hard.

And you are taking the hard

and rising to the f-ing occasion,

and all I’m saying,

in case you don’t hear it fairly,

is that you are




and very much supported.

So reach out if it was necessary to,’ movement your village is ready to build you up.
