Reality star — and mama to Mason! — Kourtney Kardashian has been with us for six weeks already. If you’ve missed any of her prior blogs, check them out here.

Today, she talks about working motherhood — telling us why she chooses to bring 7-month-old Mason to work with her, sharing her struggles with schedules and why she considers family so important.

See more of Kourtney and boyfriend Scott Disick on E!’s Keeping Up with the Kardashians and Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami, which recently premiered its second season.

After having Mason, I have a whole new respect for mothers. I feel such a sense of empowerment being a mom. But I do wonder: How do they/we do it all?

Scott, Mason and I just spent a couple of days in San Diego visiting some college friends who have two babies each and are both stay-at-home mommies. We all discussed the differences in our schedules and lives — me taking Mason with me versus staying at home for nap time, etc. They seemed to be on more of a strict schedule, whereas mine is so drastically different from day to day.

For me, juggling mommyhood and work is a challenge but each day I learn little tricks to make it all come together. Whether I’m buying for our two DASH stores, designing for our different clothing/jewelry/bikini lines, doing photo shoots or working on any of our other projects, each day is so different from the next. I feel lucky that most of my work allows me to spend so much time with Mason, as he is my FIRST priority!

I bring Mason with me everywhere that I can as long as it’s safe. I struggle with the thought of whether I should be leaving him at home to have a regular set schedule and nap even if that means not being with me. I think whatever works for each individual situation is best. Mason is so easygoing and loves seeing new places and meeting new people. I love having him with me and always knowing he is safe and taken care of. It fits into my lifestyle.

I am also lucky that I have such a big family to help me. And Mason is lucky he has so many family members who love him and all want their time with him, too. I hadn’t seen a movie since before Mason was born and was dying to see Sex and the City 2 with my mom and sisters. Mason stayed with Grandpa Bruce and had some “man time”.

An hour into the movie I started to feel guilty, like, ‘Why am I at a movie? I would rather be with my son, he’s the most important thing to me.’ I’m sure other mothers go through this guilt, but I do think some “me” time is important also!
