Benefits of a Working Mom

Working for a small company certainly comes with its advantages and disadvantages when discussing whats important to myself and my family.

While my dh's company has the medical, dental and vision benefits the company I work for still offers vacation, paid holidays, 401K, short term disabilityand some flexability along with a real family business atmosphere.

I feel like flexability is a double edge sword. On one side when the kids are sick my boss knows that its important to me that I be there to take care of them. Or when I need to either come in late or leave early because maybe they're doing Muffins with Mom or a class party at my ds school. The other side of the sword is that there is NO flexability when it comes to working from home one or two days a week. Which is something that I've tried for over the years but just isn't feasible working in a small company.
