So I came up with this, which really sums up my life.
As a WAHM running my own business, I often feel like I’m failing my kids. Having client deadlines to meet often means they are left for an extra hour to watch TV, play on their iPods and grab their own snacks. (This builds independence, no?)
But when I think of the things that working from home affords me the pleasure of doing – walking my kids to and from school every day, volunteering in their classrooms, going on fun adventures with them, being Chief boo-boo kisser and more – I realize I’m luckier than I could ever have imagined. (Crazy work ‘all-nighters’ be damned!!)
So if you ever feel like this, take heart – you’re not alone.
You are a GREAT parent who loves their child(ren)! Enjoy them and every minute of their amazing childhood.
Forget the laundry, if even just for a day… it’s not going anywhere. 🙂
