As Michelle Bridges has discovered, being away from your kids can be seriously hard work.
Sharing a gorgeous photo of her son, the 48-year-old shared her empathy for mothers who have to be away from their children for long periods of time.
“Sweet boy. A new appreciation to all the mums out there who for whatever reason have to make that decision which results in being away from your bubbas and family,” the former Biggest Loser trainer wrote.
“It’s been three days and it will end after five, and my heart breaks with every day I am away,” she continued.
“He is with his Dad and other siblings and family and is totally fine…but it’s an ache only a mother knows.”
