This is Jamie Johnson, mom of two kids and blogger who also works a 9-to-5 job.
She recently shared a post on her blog, Hashtag Mom Fails, about balancing the demands of motherhood and a full-time job. The post was shared by the popular Facebook page Love What Matters, where it clearly struck a chord with other working parents.
Many people with 9-to-5's are familiar with the pressure to stay at work past 5 pm, and to do work during off-hours.
Please stop judging me for leaving the office at exactly 5 pm, but my kids are waiting to be picked up from the sitter.
I know I’m missing this meeting, but my kid’s preschool graduation is more important.
I know I was late today, but I can’t drop the baby off at daycare until 7:45 am.
I know that I seem distracted, because I am distracted. I have a sick toddler and I am waiting to find out when I can get him into the pediatrician.
