The hardest part of my week as a working mum

Home / Blog / Featured / The hardest part of my week as a working mum

Young mum (and blogger at Young Mummy Survival Guide) Alex took over our Instagram a few weeks ago and uploaded this honest video as part of it — we wanted to share it with you!

Here’s what Alex says in the video if you can’t watch it:

So, morning everyone, I thought I’d add a bit of a video to this week’s Instagram. This is probably the most horrible part of my week or, if I’m honest, every day.

I’m about to set off for work and I’ve left Lily crying and upset. And it’s really hard, and it’s something that’s still really new to me.

I don’t think I’ll ever get used to it, but I think the one nice thing I can take out of it is that I get a huge hug from her later. So now I just wanna get to work so I can get home for that hug.
