WTF

Source: natural-pregnancy-mentor.com

Sorry for the lack of posts this week... (excuse me) but it is fucking hard being a mom. Plus working and pumping. Shit its hard. I've come to the realization that everyday something or someone will always be neglected. Whether its not enough time with your baby, your husband, your job, your health, your friends & family whatever. You will never complete everything on your to do list and make everyone happy and you have to be okay with that.

That's hard to accept. Cup of Jo did a post interviewing working moms regarding work/life balance and this statement really resonated with me:

There are only 24 hours in a day, and if you want to spend time playing with your kids, hanging out with your friends and partner, working at a job you love and having some time for yourself to take a bath or read a book, you might not get to do each of these things, at least for as long as you'd like. Allocating time becomes a real challenge. It's less about balance and more about compromise.
