When it comes to being a working mom, I often cannot quite tell what exactly I feel so guilty about. Do I regret not having as much time as I would like with my girls? Or am I feeling badly about the fact that I like my job, that it satisfies a core part of my personality, and sometimes my day is actually physically easier when I am sitting at my desk? If the latter, what kind of mother does that make me?
Daily occurrences mirror life and if we take note we can glean pearls of wisdom. Bring your children to your field. Expose them as much as possible. Let them know and understand what it is that you do. Make them partakers of your victories and your losses. It will be an enriching experience for all concerned. Work and the home front do not have to be mutually exclusive
