Hello!

4 Comments

I have two gorgeous young kids and am working 4 long days and trying to study at the moment too. My husband works part time and has them a few days a week, and mostly looks after the school drop offs and pick ups. It is logical because of the opportunities I have at my work and ultimately higher earning potential, and I am lucky that my husband is the most wonderful dad. But I still can’t help but feel guilty that I’m not around with my gorgeous kids more. It will only be for another 12 months or so, and then I will try to cut back, but kids grow so much in a year! Just a whinge really because we are every fortunate in many ways and certainly better than being out of work, but I do worry that I’m missing out!

  • Don’t feel guilty. Focus on the time you do spend with them and make it count.

  • Don’t feel guilty you are working hard for your family. Cherish the moments you get to spend with your children and remember you are building a better future for your kids.
