Thoughts For A Thursday.

While I think it's a little lame and sort of a cop-out to post a quote as a blog post, this one seems appropriate for today:

"I think every working mom goes through the times when you feel that if you weren't working perhaps you'd be giving them a little more. I've always believed the quality of the time is so much more important than the quantity."
~Jackie Zeman

This was the quote today on my "I Love You, Mom" desk calendar that Alex got me for Christmas. Such a good little shopper! I had to Google this Jackie Zeman chica, and it would appear that she's the actress that plays 'Bobbie' on General Hospital. Who knew? While I can't speak to her mothering skills, I think this particular opinion she has is spot on. I've posted my feelings on working vs. SAHM status before, and today's calendar quote was just one more reminder for me that while I might drag my feet on the way into work a few mornings a week, I'm doing what is right for my family at this point in our lives.

Oh, and just so this entire blog post isn't a cop-out, click here to sign up for a free sample of Purex Complete 3-in-1 Laundry Sheets. You're welcome.

First, those Purex 3 in 1 deals are great - I tried them out and L-O-V-E-D them!

Second, thank you for this post. Though I am not yet a mom, I stress over the financial status that may exist when the day does come, and what that will mean for me having to *gasp* be a working mom (but I'm a teacher now, so I do have summers off - super yay!). This put my heart at ease ... and I agree whole heartedly with it! The quality is so much more important than the quantity <3

Hi Kristi,
Even as a mother of twins, I struggled with the decision. It just so happens my position was eliminated, so my choice was made for me. Now that I'm here, I love it! That's not to say I'll stay home forever because I want to get back to teaching someday. Just want to say you're doing a great job!

Everyone has to do what is right for them, and it seems like you've got it pretty sorted. Don't let other ppl guilt you otherwise!!
And oh, how I wish they'd send that lil' ol' freebie internationally, damn!
