The Working Mom’s Credo


As working moms we bear the burden of carrying our families on our backs. Indeed, this life is exquisite yet excruciating. Part of the reason it is so hard is because of the inequities at home and at work. While those inequities may make us weary, we can never give up.

The Working Mom’s Credo

I have delivered life in the midst of strife. 

I have carried a family on my back without compliment only flack. 

I have been mischaracterized as cold, disrespected, lied to and called old.

I have performed childcare duties as if I were the only one only to be ridiculed for not being "fun".

I have pulled a rabbit out of a hat many times keeping my head high despite being maligned. 

Doing the hard work regardless of how I may feel 

But just because I'm magic doesn't mean I'm not real.
