This morning, groggy parents everywhere are settling back into the “work-week” routine. The end of the semester is upon us and there is much work to be done.
That whole mom guilt thing you struggle with from time-to-time, it’s not just in your head. Turns out it’s a very normal way to feel, and common, too. There are hundreds of thousands of other moms who are struggling to strike the perfect work-life balance, and internalizing feelings of guilt in the process.
I wish I had the answer that unlocked the key to achieving perfect harmony between work, school, and home, but I don’t. Everyone’s schedules are different, and only you know what’s best for your family.
But – this I do know…
You are a rock-star! You have the capability to be a strong, very present mother without having to forfeit your dreams.
