Seeing my 8 year old daughters face beaming now that summer fun officially started was the highlight of my day. And as a mom of two kids I welcome the break from school rigors to a more relaxed pace for the next few months and the laid back days I’ll have with my children. But I also had a pit in my stomach today. School is out. It means that I’ll have to juggle the demands of my business and the needs and wants of my children more than “normal” for the next few months. They’ll need me more of me and want more of my attention, and I of course will want to spend more time with them, but I also know when I do, I’ll feel the guilt and pressure (self imposed) about the time I’m not spending moving my company forward and the balls that are dropping during this juggling act. And if I’m focused on the business, I’ll feel like I’m blowing it as a mom and I’m causing permanent damage to my children. Being a mom brings me the greatest joy and the greatest guilt.
