“I can honestly say being a mom is the most challenging job I’ve ever had, and the one I have loved the most. It’s a job from which you never get a break—24 hours a day, seven days a week. My children are the world’s best negotiators, and while being a mom has given me some of the greatest joys in my life, it’s downright hard work. I had my girls in my 30’s when I knew how to manage my time better and that turned out to be the smartest move I could make. I had a strong support system to help us, but most importantly, I had grown and matured a little before they came into my life. I was in a better financial situation and more established in my career. I had a stronger sense of myself. And, that has made me a better mom.”
