The Block’s Georgia on the struggles of being a working mother

The Block’s Georgia Caceres has revealed she suffered extreme mother’s guilt while filming the show.

Georgia, 33, and her husband Ronnie, 41, appeared on the home renovation show in 2017.

In an essay for 9Honey, the mother-of-two revealed she only saw her children ‘once in 90 days’.

Georgia went on to say her parents ended up moving into their home to ensure their children’s routine was not disturbed.

In the revealing essay, Georgia said that before going on The Block she prided herself on ‘being ‘that’ mum that was all over everything!’

But upon returning home from her reality TV stint, Georgia said she found her life was in something of a disarray – and admittedly struggled when trying to reinstate her former stringent routines.

That, she says, is when she had a light bulb moment.

‘This is what it’s like to be a working mother,’ she wrote.
