The firstborn has car trouble, "mom, you've got to come right now!", younger needs money for food, because he doesn't like what I make, "hurry!". School needs money for the uniforms, "right now!". The dog has to get walked. Dishes need doing, laundry doesn't do itself, floors, ceilings, windows. It seems like everybody and everything else gets priority! And, the thing is, the only time anybody notices my work is when it's NOT done! Something's gotta give!
I know a lot of moms. Some of them work, some go to school, some play tennis, some like to shop. How come they get to have lives?
