Life of a Working Mom

With 70.8% of moms with kids under the age of 18 working (check out working mom stats) – there are a lot of mothers who know how true this graphic rings true:

Life as a working mom can feel like an endless void of to-dos. Not only are you wanting to care for your children, but you have a responsibility to your job.

    Let it go. You can’t be perfect, so choose what is most important. My daughter likes her store-bought birthday cake just as much as one I baked, and she likes baking one together even more (yes, that’s a future birthday party theme, making cake).  It’s more important to build towers than it is to pick up the blocks, so they just stay on the floor (for weeks until vacuuming day).  Let go of the guilt.  For me, working (well, going to school for now, but working soon) lets me be a better mom, and my daughter adores her daycare.  I couldn’t give her the same chance to have so many friends if I were home with her, and I’d get fed up and be no fun.  Work makes me a better mom, and we all benefit.
