We live over whelmed by the Disney-style images of an idealized life, where love stories end when the couple gets married and they “live happily ever after”. Have you ever questioned what “ever after” really means? Let me tell you … it means we buy a house, pay bills, and have arguments over the remote control. Eventually, we become parents, and time seems to start running against us!
We are living in the REAL world! Not surprisingly, it has nothing to do with that fantasy one of princess movies or TV commercials. We find ourselves running around between work, our home and swimming lessons. This real world is complicated; but also wonderful in its own unique way. As a working mom and wife, this world is the best thing that ever happened to me, personally. The craziness of MOTHERHOOD is, of course, included in this wonderful definition of my world.
Motherhood gets more and more complicated over time. Mothers are fighting to balance their career, their kid’s homework, activities and quality time with them all the time. This is OUR world and it is a great one! At the end of a very long and challenging day, what matters the most is that wonderful-true-love-good-night-kiss from our child, exhausted after a very long day.
At HomeWork Solutions we have real moms, as clients, employees and partners. We want to take a moment to wish them a wonderful Mother’s Day … this Sunday and every day. We appreciate all you do! Moms, if you are a HomeWork Solutions client, we even have a small gift for you today.
