Much Needed Break
When I found out that some friends of mine from work would be leaving, I was overcome with both joy and sadness. I'm so happy they'll be moving on in their careers, but bummed that I won't get to see them at work anymore. That's the nature of the biz! It's common for someone to have to accept a gig out of state. I've been fortunate enough to maintain a career here in New York. But those who may be considering a job in TV, should be open to relocate at the drop of a hat. It's expected that folks will be moving on at some point.
When I was invited to their going away parties, I was a bit hesitant. Not because I didn't want to go, it would mean not tucking my baby girl in that night. One of the toughest parts about being a mom is having to split your time. I'm often torn. One side of my brain says, "Go have fun! You deserve to be out with friends!" While the other side says, "Are you crazy? You can't be out there droppin' it like it's hot, when you have a baby at home!"
After discussing it with my hubby, it was a go. After all, I won't be working with these two lovely ladies anymore. It's only right that I support them as they move on in their careers.
It was a bit tough because I'm not used to being out this late. As a mom, I know there will be times when I may want to go out with friends. It's not something I do all the time, but once in a while can't hurt. Have you ever felt guilty having to choose between going out with friends and staying home with your little one? I wanna know! In the meantime check out some more pics!
It was a fun night, but I paid for it the next day. I could barely keep my eyes open. How do you party people do it?
