Half-Mom


Guest post from: Joe Castro

I was on the internet researching http://www.tvbydirect.com/directv-deal/VIRGINIA-VA-direct-tv.html when I came across a blog by a working mom. On her blog page, she used the term “half- mom.” This phrase caught my attention, so I started reading further. Through the course of her entry, she was talking about the idea that moms nowadays are half-moms because we feel so split between our careers and our families. This leads to feelings that, as mothers, we can only do our jobs at home half way, and at work we can only give half our effort there as well. It’s tough to feel so split. I love being a working mother. I feel like I am a better mom because I work. As a teacher, I feel like I am a more empathetic teacher because I am a mother too. The two seem to be a good compliment to one another; however, I agree with the sentiment that at times I feel like I am not doing either job as fully as I could. When I am stuck at work grading mounds of papers, I find myself distracted and worrying over what is happening or not happening at home. When I am home, it is easy to feel like I should be spending more of my hours dedicated to answering emails or grading those nagging papers or tests. I guess this idea of “half-mom” just goes with the territory of being a working mother.
