Just this week, I had a chance to better get to know a couple of other moms who blog AND work full-time jobs. And it was very, very nice.
Sometimes being a Catholic working mother seems like I'm stuck between two worlds. Like if I was truly a Catholic mother, I would be at home, cooking, cleaning, and of course home-schooling my children. And then if I was truly a working mother, I'm supposed to be focused on my career and wearing pants suits and having a house-cleaner Oh boy, do I wish I had a house-cleaner!
So...what to do if your heart is pulled towards being a stay-at-home wife and mother, but your head knows you must be a working wife and mother if you want your kids to you know, eat and stuff? I'll tell you what to do, you find inspiration and support from others in your same situation!
Link-up Alert!! I need inspiration from you! Are you a working mom? It doesn't matter if you're full-time, part-time, only-when-baby-sleeps-time, working from home or outside the home. I want to hear from you if you're a physician, speaker, accountant, Etsy shop owner, writer, teacher, product reviewer, CCD instructor, or anything in between!
I would love to read more about what you do, how you balance life, and any tips and tricks you might have for helping others.
Here are some questions you could answer as part of your post (not mandatory):
1) What do you do for work and why do you work?
2) Did your mother work?
3) Describe a typical work day.
4) What's the best part about having a job?
5) What's your least favorite part?
6) What would make your life easier?
7) How do your children handle their mom's career?
8) Do you feel supported in what you do?
9) What are your future goals when it comes to work/motherhood?
10) What are some tips that help you balance it all?
I can't wait to read your posts, no matter when you get around to writing it! I will create a page so you can easily find this link-up later. And if you don't have a blog but would like to participate, just leave me a long-winded comment!!
(Disclaimer: All moms are working moms. If you are a stay-at-home mother, then I know you have the hardest job of all! This link-up is purely meant to encourage those of us that are trying to find balance and harmony as a working woman and mother. Peace!)
