I’m the type of person that likes to approach life decision by creating a pros & cons list to weigh my options before making a final choice. A side effect of enjoying making pros & cons lists is that you tend to start making them all the time about all kinds of things. This week I’ve been pondering this list, so I decided to share it with you… 9 pros & cons of being a working mom!
Pro: Feeling pretty because you do your hair and makeup every day.
Con: Having to do your hair & makeup everyday.
Pro: Wearing attractive clothing & shoes regularly.
Con: Not being able to spend everyday in sweatshirts & yoga pants.
Pro: Adult conversation. Enough said.
Con: The workplace drama that often comes along with adult conversation.
Pro: Commute time where you can enjoy your own music, podcast, or silent thoughts & day dreams.
Con: Feeling you’re “wasting your life” commuting to work.
Pro: Challenging yourself intellectually.
Con: Feeling overwhelmed by the challenge of work because you’re too busy worrying about what you need to do at home.

Con: Worrying all day about the craziness you’ll be returning home to.
