I was honored to be interviewed by Charlene Prince Birkeland for JobMom, a blog about the journey to find family-work-life balance. I enjoy reading her posts that bring up topics like managing work life balance when a spouse travels, from Mom to Mompreneur and paying the price to follow your dreams.
Being a working mom is such a unique experience, it is great to hear other voices like Charlene’s to see different perspectives on common issues. I completely related to the summer scheduling challenges from her post "Schools Out, What Now". Especially when she said "My flexible, freelance schedule is a dream come true — until summer
vacation hits". I am trying to schedule my three boys in camps they will enjoy so I can also have time to work, yet have still have time for summer roadtrips. It does give new meaning to the word "vacation". I think I may just use Charlene’s strategy of spending the afternoons together.
