How Do You Do It?

Today I did some volunteer work at my daughter's school. I got in at 9am and left at 130pm.

And when I got home, I was exhausted.

And you know what, I'm still exhausted as I crawl into bed to call it a day.

I didn't do anything too strenuous either but I was all over the place doing this and doing that and I feel like I could collapse (of course, going to the park and the grocery store after all this didn't help) and I feel like I would die if I worked full time.

It leaves me pondering how the hell do working moms do this?

I also wondering if I could even hack it as a working mom?

I'm sure after some time I would find a healthy balance and I wouldn't be bitching about how tired I am but you know me, I'm a whiner.

So how do you do it?

That's because it's 100 percent more exhausting to be around children -- especially other people's -- all day. I work almost full time (all day 4 days a week) and yes, I'm tired. But whenever I volunteer at E's preschool, even for just a couple hours, I leave completely exhausted. I don't know how working mother TEACHERS do it!

I agree with Jackie, I don't know how teachers do it. Helping at the boys' school always wears me out.
