As new parents there are countless challenges. One of the hardest is accepting that we cannot do it all and keep our sanity. Becoming a mother changed my life for the better, but I was in no way prepared for the "mom guilt" that most of us experience at some point.
When a lovely writer from Care.com asked me to share my thoughts on balancing work and family and managing those feelings of guilt, I was delighted.
Here's the interview...
I've found it isn't always about "balance", it's about figuring out what works best for you. Sometimes that requires a bit of trial-and-error to see what fits, but in the end as long as everyone is healthy and happy, that's what's most important.
I'd love to know what you think! Do you experience mom guilt? How do you make time for yourself and keep the guilt at bay? Please share with me by leaving a comment below.
