Working Moms: Do you worry about missing your children’s important milestones because of work? Were there any that you missed? If so, how did you deal with it?

Interesting question!

My DCP says babies always do things at home first, and if that isn't true, she's not telling ;)

My parents and ILs also babysit, and they were under strict orders NOT to say if they saw DD do something we haven't said she's doing already. One time MIL got too close to the line, basically strongly hinting that DD2 was pulling to a stand, but we set her straight, lol.

So I don't know that I truly missed any, and I still feel like I spend a lot of time with my kids despite working, so I'm ok with it.

I don't really worry about missing things.
