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.

As a mom of young kids, Johnson explains that she can't stay past 5 pm, and sometimes has to miss meetings or arrive to work late. She asks others: "please stop judging me."

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 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.
