Yesterday was one of those days. One of those “I feel like a failure” kinda’ve days. You know them well, any parent has them I’m sure. Most days I am quite sane and can logically reason and know that I am a loving, attentive parent who is doing the best she can for her children. Then there are those days that I am illogical and take everything to heart and feel as though I am the worst of all parents in the world!
I recently took a new position at work, which comes with its pros and cons. Pros – I no longer work shift work – Cons – for the kids it feels like I’m gone a whole lot more. 4 days in a row every single week.

I consider myself to be an efficient, intelligent, multi faceted individual. (yes yes… one who is also not that humble right? is that what you’re thinking?) I’m just being honest. In the professional world, I am an asset to my employers. Never in all my life have I had any issues finding employment, and not just any job, the one I wanted. Nor have I ever had any issues with my employers. I’ve always received letters of commendation when I’ve left a job for any reason, and my employers have always expressed deep regret at my departure.
