> My T talked to me a bit about this, too. But whenever he starts talking about the fact that I'm a mom, working out of the home, and trying to take care of my family and house all at the same time, I start to roll my eyes at him. I'm not exactly sure why, but it feels sort of like he's making excuses for me or something. Other women can handle these responsibilities without freaking out.

I hope you're not being too hard on yourself. Frankly, I'm one of those people who couldn't do both - work outside the home, and take care of everything that needs to be done at home. It's a huge responsibility and a lot of work. It's not easy. I admire those who can do both and do both well. I can't handle that much stress. A job outside the home, then grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning, paying the bills, running errands, all the appts. for self and kids, all the activities, and school functions? Are there enough hours in the day? Let your T tell you how wonderful you are for doing all of this and that it's not easy to do. I don't know how many kids you have, but I know with our 4 just keeping up with where they need to be and running them where they need to be is tiring.

My hat is off to you and all the other mom's who do both.
