Our company intranet posted an article about a fellow employee, a mother, who lost her one-year-old son due to an accident at the child’s day care. The company sponsored a 100-day walking challenge, and this mother spoke of how this helped her cope with the loss of her son.
Stories like these make me thankful for my mom, who stayed home with all four of her kids, and for my dad who worked so hard to make that possible. I don’t have the honor of being a mom yet, but I know that, when that time comes, I won’t waste those precious years at work. I’ll spend my days with my children reading, snuggling, making home-made Play-Doh and stamps out of potatoes like my mother did with my sisters and me. Those memories are special to me, and I will treasure them always.
Instead of being like my co-worker, I want to tell your listeners to be a mom to their babies. I look forward to the day when I turn in my pink slip and put on my mommy hat.
Be a Mom to Your Babies
