Single Working Mom’s Worst Nightmare – Summer

Featured BlogHer Network Post

[Editor's Note: While I am not a mom myself, many of my clients are. You manage a schedule that works all year long and then whoosh, it's summer vacation and school is out. That is a game-changer for most working mom's. Here's how one working mom handles it...what do you do? -Paula G

There are a lot of things that single mom's dread. Having two sick kids and being sick yourself. Missing out on important school assemblies. But summer has to be the worst.

At the end of May both of my boys will be released for summer vacation. That bright spot in their lives that means no schoolwork and lots of swimming for 3 months.

Which is great, except that my job doesn't have summer vacation.

What do you do to balance work and your children's summer vacation?
