Ditching the Working Mom Summer Guilt

Posted on June 28, 2018 at 2:40 PM

Summer break is here and while many of the moms I know are planning out their summer activities of places to go, things to see, days lounging by the pool and spending quality time with their children – for me, these next 11 weeks will look the same as all other weeks of the year.
