Working parents: this article is for you. You know how the constant struggle between work and raising your kids and the time limitations put on you really calls for a lot of maneuvering when it comes to your life.
And you know that some people in the workplace will judge moms and dads who have to leave at the same time to take care of their kiddos.
Read on and see how one mom handles this conundrum.
A working mom named Jamie Johnson wrote this interesting piece.
“Please stop judging me for leaving the office at exactly 5 p.m., but my kids are waiting to be picked up from the sitter.
I know I’m missing this meeting, but my kid’s preschool graduation is more important.
I know I was late today, but I can’t drop the baby off at daycare until 7:45 a.m.
I know I seem distracted, because I am distracted. I have a sick toddler and I am waiting to find out when I can get him into the pediatrician.
I don’t want to look exhausted when I show up to the office, but I have been awake since 4:30 a.m. with an inconsolable kid.
