Being a Working Mom...

It sure is tough being a working mother of two small kids, plus student going back to school to get an MBA. I have a lot of guilt. Which I know I shouldn't but I just can't help to feel bad that I am not there for my kids as much I would like to. Today I had a parent teacher conference for Nayshawn. He is doing good. He needs some help with his reading and spelling but overall he is doing great. His teachers where very nice, they gave me some great suggestions on how to improve his reading. But although they ensured me that I just have to work with him and they understand that I am a working mother and it is hard sometimes to get everything done, I still feel a little guilty about the fact that I really don't have a lot of time to work with him on his reading. I have a total of 2 1/2 hours in the evening to get home, make dinner, do homework, and get ready for the next day before the kids have to be in bed. And then on the weekend I feel so bad about the week days that I spend as much time as possible doing everything else with them. Not to mention how tired I am from the work week. I guess I will have to work on this and I guess as they get older I won't feel so bad. Well just had to get that off my chest.

What a great example you are of hard work, setting goals, & acheiving dreams!!

I know with my son he didn't get read to as much because life just got in the way but he turned out fine. I think it's much more important to show a child that you are finding your own happiness.
