I may be getting a promotion at work. The thought of it unhinges me a bit. These two years away from the executive management mode helped me realize how miserable I was attempting to juggle motherhood with management.
The revised adage is true...you can have it all, just not all at the same time. Picking Ben up from school once a week is such a wonderful gift. Being able to volunteer at his school has been corny and fun. I remember when I barely knew any of the parents because I was busy running in and out the door so fast.
But Ben's $25,000 tuition is crushing us. His education means everything to me. So you do what you have to do.
Being a working mom is all about setting boundaries....and staunchly defending them.
