Hi friends! Julia at My Life in Transition asked me to be a part of her Moms Make It Work Guest Blogging Series. I feel undoubtedly unworthy, but also incredibly flattered, and I'm very happy to share my story about my life as a part-time working mom.
I've never really felt like I have everything together, especially since having kids. I definitely would not consider myself one of those moms that makes it look easy. Ha! NOPE. Probably the opposite. Like I just can't quite seem to get my wits about me when we're all out in public. Despite all of my best planning, I often find myself in these situations in which I'm feeling sweaty and frazzled, and definitely awkward. I am the chick at the zoo with grown out bangs hanging in my face, wrestling an over-flowing diaper bag while pinning down a floppy-haired argumentative toddler to secure mittens on his little paws.
But gosh darn it, I try. Not to be perfect, but to be the best "me" for my kids. Hopefully that makes me at least relatable, if nothing else.
So click on over to Julia's blog and see what I have to say about how I tackle this life, raising little children while working part-time outside of the home. And then if you're feeling all "Kumbaya, moms are awesome, we're all in this together!", you should go and read the rest of the posts in the series. I tell you, I look forward to Julia's guest posts every week, it's really interesting to get a glimpse into the lives of all of these other women, how and why they got where they are today, and how they all make it work. Many of them are doing things completely differently than I am, and it's seriously all good.
