I know this is a struggle for so many moms. I can only imagine how hard it is for you to leave your sweet girls and head back to work. Just know that no mom is perfect, that we just have to balance the demands as best as we can. And remember that you do more wonderful things with your girls each summer than most of us fit in during the whole year. Your girls are SO blessed to have you as a mom--working or not.

Someone once told me that it's important for our children to see that we are not perfect. It takes a great deal of stress off them when they are not having a good day, and teaches them how to deal with bumps in the road. Audra, from what I know, you are an excellent mom. One to be looked up to. I have a very "Emotionally demonstrative" child also (My Miss M). My husband and I wondered if it would have been better for her, if I worked part-time and she was exposed to different people more often. She seems to behave completely different for other people (She acts like a little angel). I'm at home with the kids, and my house a lot of times, seems like a tornado hit. I have to admit that I don't do nearly as many activities with my children as you do, but you always inspire me with your great wealth of ideas and activities. So thank you, and keep up the fantastic work you do as a mother and a teacher! The world is lucky to have you :)


Don't knock yourself about working, it isn't a crime. Your girls are cared for and it is good for them to know that they have a network of people who love them and also good for them to know that people have to work for a living. As they get older this will be an important example to them that they don't have things given to them but have to earn them. They won't think you are abandoning them unless you somehow feed them that idea. You're a good, loving Mum and they will know that.
