Some strategies for dealing with working mom guilt:
- Take your child to work day. I once took my infant daughter to New York for Fashion Week (she stayed at the hotel with my best friend while I went to fashion shows) and although it was hectic, at least we were together.
- Take care of yourself. I'm all for massages, regular workout, mani/pedis or whatever else helps keep you rested, revived and sane.
- Make family time a priority. One of the rules in our family is that everyone sits down to dinner together every night. It's how I was raised, and I think it's one of the most important things you can do to make a family feel like, well, a family.
