The title pretty much sums it up. I read Every Single Article that comes across my desk with the words “balance” and “motherhood”. I have it about as good as it gets, really. Honestly, I write my own hours, I have a husband who shares the load, and I don’t have any crazy extenuating circumstances like a high-needs child or a high-maintenance parent. But still I look for the magic bullet to creating a more successful day, often bolstered by coffee and/or chocolate.
Today, I’ll share a good one from a friend with a wicked sense of humor, Kelly Brown. She normally writes over at her blog, The Turnip Farmer. She tells it like it is from her situation as a person working for an employer. But really, she could be any mom, with any permutation of work/stay-at-homedness. Do you recognize yourself in this article at all?
