Gwen Stefani Talks the Nightmare of Balancing Career and Kids

When I was young, my mom had a coffee mug with a cartoon super mother flying through the sky multi-tasking as she went. I remember the poor disheveled carton figure looked like she’d been side-swiped by a low-flying airplane.
I now understand how true that silly mug was. As I think most moms do. The whole balancing thing is kind of hard when there are literally not enough hours in the day to complete everything and make everyone happy.
Celebrity Baby Scoop talks with a Celebrity Momster sharing her take on balancing career and children.
"I've never been able to balance being a mum and my singing career - it's a nightmare," Gwen, who has kids Kingston, 5, and Zuma, 3, with her husband Gavin Rossdale, tells Closer magazine. "I love my boys, so if there's a decision to make, they come first."
For a lot of moms, work demands cannot be put off until tomorrow to just spend time with the kids.
The goal for me is to balance all aspects of life as well as I can and make sure my kids know that it’s not that I don’t want to spend time with them; I just sometimes can’t! (Oh, and I do also love most of my work, except for my inbox filled with Final Projects waiting to be graded…)
This is probably the ideal for a lot of families. But, of course, while Gwen Stefani can afford to be choosy about turning down work obligations, how do regular mothers handle that challenge?
