However, given the nature of her job, she doesn't get a lot of time to be around her kids, but she makes the most out of it whenever she gets a chance.
Expressing the difficulty of being a working mom and having to stay away from her kids for several days or months, Hammon shared a picture of her family and wrote a heartfelt caption that read,
"That moment you haven't seen your kids in over a month, and an instant hearts are happy, at ease, and in tears…Obviously being a working mom is tough and I'm on the road or gone a LOT- there's a multitude of feelings or emotions I go thru while I'm away...but once their full body hugs take hold, my heart comes undone!"
