How do you balance your life with also being a mother? It is all very chaotic and busy…..but I always pick them up from school in the afternoon and go home and have a snack and talk….then I go back to work, but I don’t think they even notice that. I think it is important to be around when they are home.
What do you wish you knew before you became a mother that you now know? That I should have travelled more fun places and slept in more in the mornings before having kids!

 What is the best thing about being a working mom? Hardest thing? The best thing is that it puts things in a bigger perspective and you don’t have to look at everything so serious. Family and friends are the most important thing after all.  Hardest thing is to have enough time…..
