Alas, the day has come when all the kids (and teachers) go back to school, which means I go back to school. Not as a student, but as a professor. I wish I had waited more semester to go back to teaching, but I foolishly thought it would be ok leaving behind a 4 1/2 month old since it’s only two days a week. Reality check: It’s not ok and I’m counting down the weeks until school gets out. One down, 15 more to go!
Trying to find a balance between my professional life and mom life has been difficult, but I strive to embrace both every day because I am a working mom, even if it’s a part time working mom. I’m glad I had the summer to take time off to be a full time mom. It’s hard to go back to work, but I love teaching music! It’s time to say goodbye to short shorts, crop tops and flowy dresses and hello to slacks and blazers.
Are there any moms out there that have any advice on balancing work and family life?
