The challenges of being a working Mum

There’s nothing like being a Mum, it’s the best feeling in the world but let’s be honest it’s not always that way is it?

I tend to worry a lot, most of it is probably unnecessary, actually it is unnecessary (e.g. will she cry at nursery when I drop her off this morning and eat all her food or hurt herself)?
I send myself round the bend with thoughts of things that mostly never occur/happen.

If it’s not worrying, it’s the guilt of leaving her with someone else and thinking I should stay home and spend quality time with my child. I even feel guilty when I forget to do something like pay a bill because I feel I should be able to remember everything.

If we’re not constantly concerned about the health and safety of our children, we’re constantly cleaning them, the house or trying to get them to stop jumping up and down so you can undress them to get in the bath. I’ve had days where I took time to cook a nice nutritious meal like chicken with steamed vegetables and rice only to be told “I don’t like that” then the plate gets pushed into the centre of the table and I hear “Can I have beans on toast” –deep breath!!!

It’s not easy finding a balance between Motherhood and working, especially having your own business. You can find yourself doing more than you need to and getting burnt out. I started to keep a schedule which is making life a bit easier but with that said at times I even forget to look at it – defeats the purpose I know 

Some days are plain sailing where there are others where everything seems to go wrong from waking up late, road closure during school run, it’s starts raining….it’s like a domino effect and you just want to scream from the top of your lungs and say GIVE ME A BREAK!!! But we manage to keep calm and hold it in or do we?

What do you find the most difficult about being a working parent?
