"Your only goals are to leave the house looking good and without your first-grader sobbing because she hates getting dressed in the morning. If that means you put her to bed in her school clothes to avoid a 7 a.m. tantrum, I think you’re a genius."
Very cute Bettina. I don't have any children, but honesty I don't know how those of you who do have kids and hold down a full time job do it! If you have to take the advice below to get the job done, so be it!
Thanks for sharing that, Bettina. I would change that one line to "look presentable" as opposed to "look good".
I always remember what a friend told me when my oldest son was an infant and I was struggling with the mother/work issues. She said, "It's hard. You feel like your not doing your best as a mom, and your not doing your best at your job, but you wouldn't have it any other way."
From my side I couldn´t do it without the help and support of a great partner, superb child care and a wonderful neighbour and most of all a company that allows me to work from home when all is going haywire ;-)
