This week has been LONG!! Sick baby= very tired mumma! Which leads me to think.. What happens when I return to work and the kids are sick? I’ve been through it before but it doesn’t make it any easier. It’s the same old problem, wanting to be in two places at once. Of course our children come first but we still always feel guilty about not being at work, particularly if we only work part time. Taking a day or two off potentially means our whole working week. We just have to hope that management wherever we are working are accepting of the ‘working mum’ and understand that our children come first. We working working mums have lots of skills to contribute to the workplace and we want to do our best. Hmmm need to listen to my own advice right?! Be there for my children when they need me.. Work hard when I’m there.. Sounds obvious!! So why the guilt?!
