Full time working mothers are amazing!
I think mothers who work full time are amazing. They’re up before everyone else fixing lunches, stay up after everyone else folding laundry, make doctor’s appointments and register kids for camps and classes in between bites on their lunch breaks, rush home in the evening to fix a healthy, but quick supper, and answer questions about homework while doing dishes. They balance the checkbook after the kids are in bed, and husband and wife maybe get 20 minutes of uninterrupted conversation per day if they’re lucky. While not every working mother carries the full load of housework and child care as well as working outside the home, there are many that do, and it is with admiration and respect for them that I write this blog.
Working mothers really have to struggle to take care of themselves, and it’s definitely a priority that gets lost in the shuffle. How do you working mothers do it? How do you make time to care of yourself, so that you can continue caring for others, and fulfill your responsibilities at work?
