Mommy guilt

Most of my best friends know (cause most of my best friends are working moms)... that I struggle with that thing called "mommy guilt." You want a successful career but always second guess whether you're being a good mom. When you take time to do more with your family, you wonder if it's at the risk of your career. Yep, it's inevitable so you just balance life and deal with it. We all manage through it and we all have better days than others.

So, onto my story. The other night I had to help Reid fill out his evaluation for school. Here's how he responded.

1. What do you like best about school? everything

2. What do you like least about school? nothing

3. I wish my teacher ________lived with me_____

Yep, we have a true teacher's pet in the making :)

Then, daycare was closed today so I took Reid into school. As we walk in his classroom there is a large sign outside their class that they made for Mother's day. Each student wrote something nice about their mom. Reid said "I love her and I play with her a lot when she's not working."

Pictures attached - cause of course I had to capture that moment - after I called all my "working mom" friends laughing :)
