The guilty mom vs The guilty employee....

Why is it that we feel guilty when we miss work to take care of our family? Why does society put this dark cloud over you if you decide that your family comes before your career? I certainly feel that way when I take care of my family in place of work. It is a constant tug of war that I am tired of playing with! It is such a waste of my time and energy that could be spent elsewhere, such as taking care of my family....So this is where I am at; my family will always come first and my job second. I will never again feel guilty because I spent time away from work to take care of my family. I just hope that I am not the only mom who feels this way.....

you are definitely not the only mom that feels that way! I haven't worked since the boys are born, only because I feel too guilty to even think of getting a job. I know that I'd be a pretty lousy employee and just not care if I were to get a job now =)
