I’ve been back to work for about two months now, after being out for three months with Abby. And although we have a pretty good routine established, it’s still sometimes difficult to find that work/life balance. I know it might not be truly balanced all the time – work or life takes over some days or some weeks. It’s just been difficult to be great for everyone all the time – a good leader, employee, mom, wife, daughter, sister, friend, housekeeper, host, etc. And Abby’s typically the first one at daycare and last one to leave, even though we take a shortened lunch to pick her up earlier.
I’m trying to give myself a break, but I feel like I’m stretched pretty thin to make it all work. And trust me – Jonathan is an awesome friend, listener, husband, cook, cleaner, Dad, etc.
So how do you make it all work?
