DAY 600... Yes, I'm a Working Mom

So apparently you cannot be a good mom and a working mom... At least that's what I've been told lately. I would like to think that I am a good mom because I am a working Mom. Aniston never goes to daycare while I work, Spencer is always home with her, and when I get home I spend as much time as I can with her. I work so that I can provide for my family and so that my husband can get an education. I don't work to get away from my daughter. I don't work because I am lazy. I work so that we don't have to live off credit cards and so that we can get out of debt. I work so that we can still afford to have fun and do things that we want to do while being students. I work so that Aniston can have clothes and all the necessary items that she needs. I work so that my husband isn't burdened with both school work and homework. Plus, since I already have my bachelors degree I can get paid more and make more than he can right now. I'm not a bad Mom because I work. I'm not one of those girls who had a baby just so she doesn't have to work. Would I love to stay home all day with my baby girl? Of course! But I'm okay with working right now so that husband can finish school and someday support our family in the lifestyle we want to have. I treasure every moment I have with my daughter and there's nothing I wouldn't do for her.

So please... tell me again why I'm a bad mom because I work.

  1. That is EXACTLY what I think too! You are the SECOND person I know who thinks that way! YOU ARE AWESOME JEN AND YOU ARE A FANTASTIC MOM NO MATTER WHAT ANYONE ELSE THINKS! In the end, no one is perfect, we all make mistakes. The only difference that exists is of those that try to be better and those that don't!
