You are smart and capable. You deserve to have a job that you love that respects the other elements of your life.
That’s why I love this quote from Dave Chappelle: “Name your price in the beginning, and if it ever gets more expensive than the price you named, get out of there.”
We all have bad weeks where we are much better employees than moms. But, know that you have options. You can live a life you want: be a great mom and great at your job (maybe not on the same day, but over time).
Know your price. Know what your limits are and what your escape hatch is. Options are power.
