We've always wondered if the Working Parent's guilt was more geared to those who can't afford to hire someone to help with their children, or to those who can! We might never know (though our money's on those who can't afford much help), but at least we know celebs DO feel the emotions of working while raising kids!
Plus, when you're as constantly busy as Victoria and David Beckham, we bet it's not easy at all!
Here's what Posh says about being a working mom:
“I think you feel so torn, don’t you? But I’ve got great people who handle my schedule and everything does revolve around the children. So, if there’s a parents’ night or an Easter bonnet parade or a nativity play, whatever it might be, then I plan everything around that so I can always be there.”
We just feel bad for the parents who CAN'T do that! She continues:
“My children are my priority and always have been. I’m up early in the morning doing spelling tests and maths quizzes before the school run, then up late with a baby and a 14-year-old who refuses to go to bed — Brooklyn. I love having children in the office. Mine are always running around.
“I had one of those swingy chairs for Harper in my office and she’d bounce one way and swing into a roll of fabric and then bounce the other way and crash into a bag of samples.”
Honestly, we're super happy to hear that you guys are so involved! Sometimes we get the feeling that in other celebrity situations that the nannies should be getting the raising credit — it sounds like you guys handle a LOT more than what others could do with your schedules!!
Those kids are gonna grow up just right! We know it!
