Where Do I Start?
Read an excerpt: Being a working mom is the most crazy, amazing, powerful, frustrating, loving experience you will ever have in your entire life. And I am here to tell you that you can do it! But you will never do it perfectly. Throw perfect out of your vocabulary. Just toss it out the window and keep on driving, because, sister, it ain’t an option for you anymore.
We’ve been fed a huge pack of lies. We’ve been told that we can bring home the bacon, fry it up in the pan, and feed our smiling, happy family with it. I am here to tell you that the quickest way to end up on a therapist’s couch or crying into your glass of pinot noir at your girlfriend’s house is to think that “perfect” and “working mother” belong in the same sentence. They don’t.
No One Has It All.
Save yourself the doctor’s bill and the AA meetings and just accept the fact that if you choose to work and be a mom, life will be far from perfect.
