Real Moms Are Grateful for Caregivers (and Are Only a Teensy-Weensy Bit Jealous)

There are some Real Moms who have to go back to work after too-short maternity leaves. They are Real Moms. They are Real Moms who thank God, fate, kismet and serendipity for bringing a Maria into their lives.

Real Moms know that without a Maria, they would be even more miserable than words could convey. Real Moms know that if they can’t be there, Maria will. Real Moms know only a Maria can comfort the kids when Real Moms have to work.

Real Moms know that the only way their babies, toddlers, preschoolers can thrive is if they love a Maria and if a Maria loves them. And so Real Moms get only a teensy-weensy bit jealous when their children hug a Maria, when their children kiss a Maria, and when their children love a Maria.

Because Real Moms can love more than one person, they know their children can, too.

[Thank you, Maria! Thank you!]
