I work outside the home 8 hours a day/ 5 days a week. When I get off work in the evenings, I go home and work another 6 hours taking care of my family and home. Being a mom who works outside the home full time isn't easy. I dream of the day when my laundry is caught up, I can make wholesome dinners every night for my family, and still squeeze in time to do a craft with my children.
There just simply doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day to accomplish all of this. Weekends tend to be the time that we try to catch up on all of those things....problems is that by time the weekend rolls around, I'm too exhausted. But, it needs to be done. Thankfully I have an awesome hubby who doesn't mind helping cook, clean and take care of the children.
This purpose of this post is NOT:
To debate being a working mom vs. a stay at home mom
Nor is it a gripe session for me.
The purpose is to get inside the hearts and minds of other working moms. I want your thoughts and advice.
