Thank you so much for writing this. I had my son the Thursday before the start of Spring ’15 semester, and went straight back to class on Monday and back to working full time the next week. It was so difficult walking around campus as a college student and then going home to a crying baby all night. I felt almost guilty for not being able to live this “perfect mom” life and give that to my son. It took a long time to realize that the things I was already doing were what made me the “perfect mom”. Motherhood is never easy, but genuineness and hard work make it all worthwhile.
