“I admire your commitment to your career, family, self. I respect the way you juggle home and work. I look forward to joining your ranks in coming years, and I know I’ll be leaning on you for advice on how to do it all!”
“I’ve been on both sides of the spectrum, so I feel like I know how both the working and stay at home moms feel. The truth is…..there isn’t a right or wrong answer here. The ultimate goal is to do what is best for your family. Whether that be staying home or working, either choice should be respected. I repeat, either choice should be respected. And, do you want to know a secret? Both moms are going think about what it would be like to be in the other one’s shoes. It’s true! Working moms think about what it would be like to stay at home with their kids, while stay at home moms think about what it would be like to work. Nothing is perfect and there are pros and cons to either choice. I think that whichever end of the spectrum we end up on, whether we chose our side or not, we should celebrate ourselves as the great mothers and providers that we are rather than making ourselves feel less than for which end we are on. God always has a plan for us and I trust that He has me right where he wants me at this moment. Blessings and happiness to all of you.”
Working moms, you do your job, and then come home and work some more. Having a job doesn’t exempt you from the dishes, soccer practice, or bath time. You’re doing it all.
I’m so proud of you. Keep up the good work! 🙂
