The working mom guilt

Honestly, it took me a while to decide whether I’d go back to the corporate world or not after I gave birth to my bunso, Erchee. But I guess, just like other working mommies, working not from home is already in my system. I tried working from home for over a year but then again, I found myself going back to what I am used to, that is working in the office.

The day I made a big decision of leaving my job abroad for the sake of my eldest, Deye, I thought it would last and be in my mom’s shoes – a plain housewife. Sure thing, working in the office helps me a lot of maintaining my rapport with other people (and not just with the machines and appliances we got in the house), but the guilt inside me never goes  each time I leave and endorse my daughters to their nanny. At the end of each day, I just tell and convince myself that this is for our own good. To keep the guilt off myself, I make sure that when I get home, I take over the kids so that my househelp can relax a bit and do some of the household chores that she needs to finish. I also promised myself not to skip any of the PTA meetings and events in school where my daughter Deye goes. This way, I could make up with them.
