I have been working since the day I graduated college....most would say I'm a workaholic...it's in my DNA! When I had my two kids, I took the 3-month maternity leave our company provided for each, and then although a little scary, I went back to work.
I can't say it's ever been easy, but truly I feel like part of my role in the family is to bring home the bacon so that I can provide the best possible life for my kids.
Sometimes I think I'm the only working mom that doesn't feel guilty? Did I wish I could've been in the carpool or been class parent, which my daughter begged me to do. No doubt. But reality set in and I knew I had was doing what I had to do to ensure we lived a good life, in a good neighbood with a great school system.
Tell me, am I alone in this?
