What advice would you give to other moms about how to balance work and life?
Don't lose yourself in your identity as a mother. You were a woman before you met your husband/partner. You were a woman before you had your children. Don't lose sight of who that person is. Spend as much time with your children as you can, but don't feel bad if you're spending time at work. Enjoy that time that you spend contributing to society, even if it's mostly fart jokes, like I do. When you're at home, be present with your child. It's quality over quantity, always.
