Thoughts on Motherhood and Work

La Petite

Lately, I have been sucking doing my best at balancing being a mom, and doing what I am passionate about (writing+fashion). Of course there is no other more important job than being a mom, so I am beyond grateful that I get to be home with my babies, and there for them whenever they need me. This means that career always¬† takes a back seat, and I am o.k. with that. It’s SO hard to say no to things I know would boost the blog, my writing, my career etc. Everything does happen for a reason, I truly believe that so I just keep telling myself how lucky I am, and that another door will open that works with my mommy schedule. Would love to know how you all stay positive when balancing mommy-hood, and career! Comment below!

    Sounds like you have your priorities straight, and that’s all you can do. I realized when I went back to work that both things (my daughter and my job) could not exact the same amount of attention and nurturing from me, so it was a no-brainer to make sure Georgia was #1 and just do my best at work until this season of life passes. Who knows what the future will bring? Could be more babies, could be a bigger job, could be something totally unexpected or something in my husband’s career that will necessitate a new calculus in our family. Until then, it’s hard not to beat ourselves up, isn’t it? I feel like I’m giving both home and work a sub-par effort most of the time, and yet the two balance each other out in a way that keeps me sane and fulfilled. Ultimately, I’ve realized that I am lucky to even have the debate, given how much unemployment and loss is out there in the world. I figure I’m lucky to even be a mom, and a working one at that. What an awesome example we are giving our little girls! XO

      You are SO right! It really is a blessing to be home with every day. I really feel like we have a special bond. But giving props beyond belief to the mamas who go out and work hard every day. SO much respect <3
