Being a working mom is not easy on anyone!
I’m sure you’ve seen the multiple memes on the internet of how we moms can’t wait to put our kids to bed every day only to miss them like crazy once they are asleep, right? Well, that’s the same case for a lot of moms who end up going back to work after spending several weeks (or months if they are lucky enough) at home on their maternity leave with their newborns. No matter how hard you try to stay strong, you just can’t let go!
Personally, I freaked out a little inside the first time I left my baby at home, even though she was with my mother. I kept worrying about my milk supply, whether or not she would nap without me and if she would notice that I wasn’t there and miss me the same way I missed her. The first time I went on an overnight trip without her was even worse!
That’s why I completely understand what Hollywood actress Zoe Saldana has to say here and why motherhood is making her tear up almost every single day! Trust me when I say we can all relate to this.
Zoe Saldana admits she “cried every day” when she went back to work after having her twins.
