Working mothers know how difficult it can be to manage time and save energy while working and taking care of the kids.
That’s why some parents leave their children in their grandparents’ care or nursery.
But for many parents, there is no other choice but to go to work and rush out to be with their children.
A mother-of-two who tries her best to balance her work and family life shared an emotional confession on her parenting blog and it quickly went viral.
In an interview with Bored Panda, Jamie said: “I had a career before I was married and had kids.
I had my first little boy at 29.It was never a question of whether I would work or not. I love to work and I knew I could do both. Plus, my family needed the money. My husband is a special education teacher that coaches high school baseball. We could not live on just his salary, even with two masters degrees.
Jamie is so happy that none of her employers have had any problem with her working full time and taking care of her family.
“They all have kids as well and are in the same boat. They are more than understanding. I think a lot of it is also because I work hard when I am at work and put in the late nights when I need to. I don’t slack and I get my work done. And I do it well. It might be a different story if I wasn’t productive.”
She added: “I am incredibly lucky to live in mine and my husband’s hometown. We have my mom and my husband’s mom and dad to help us when we need it. There is no way we could do it without them!”
