(MOBILE, Ala.) - Being a working mom is not always easy. For a lot of moms, when you have to miss out on something dealing with your kids, you feel guilty.
Danielle Parvin spends her day training others and working with school systems on their computers. With several school systems in Alabama, at times Danielle has to get on the road and head out of town on work, leaving her 6-year-old daughter Emma behind.
"I try not to leave more than two weeks in a row," Danielle said.
When at home, family is important to Parvin. She tries to spend as much time with her family as possible. The Parvin's don't have any family on the Eastern Shore, so when Danielle is away on a job, running the house and taking care of Emma falls on her husband Steven.
"He takes the brunt of the work. So he gets a gold star for that," she added.
When she knows she has to travel for a few days, Danielle will try to do things to make life easier for her family.
"I do try to cook before I leave, whether it gets eaten, it's up to them. The good news is I don't have to do it all the time."
