Sitting by the fireplace with a cup of latte in my hand and reorganizing my notes...

Sometimes, I have to be selfish with my time. Don’t feel guilty about not fixing dinner for my family. I work because I enjoy it. The work I do is interesting and challenging. I have a wonderful boss and a lot of flexibility, the hours are manageable, and the people are great. I like the adult interaction, critical thinking, and feeling like I am part of something. I also work because I think it makes me a better mom. It makes me feel like a more well-rounded person, and keeps me grounded and connected to the outside world. I don't think I'm cut out for staying at home full time.
For those moms who are working, staying at home , and working from home, it’s a constant juggling act, and not a day goes by that I don't question my choice. But, the kids know that all you are doing is fit your family and their well-beings.
