Balancing a working mom’s life

Balancing a working mom’s life is hard, and it could be the hardest job if your betterhalf is not around, and worst your closest relatives and friends also depend on you at some point.

I have been in my not-so-good MOMents in the past week. I won’t go in detail but just the same, if you are currently in my shoes, you’d feel the loads. So how do balance everything at almost the same time?

I go to work 5 days a week (that is if I get lucky and nothing comes up in between), get off the office at 6pm straight to the public market, get home at about 7pm, cook our dinner which is normally portioned up to lunch the next day, bond with the girls while I wait for the food to get cooked, guide my grade-schooler in her homework, have our dinner at 8pm most of the time, tuck the girls in bed after a while and chit chat with them. Sometimes, they get to chat with their Dada over Skype while we wait for our dinner to get ready otherwise I’ll put them to sleep first. 

Once the girls are fast asleep and I finished updating with my husband, that’s the time that I get the chance to spend time with my blogs. I normally doze off at 1am the latest, get up at 5:30am, get ready for work and start another day with the same routine.

So imagine if I had to do the household chores?
I’d probably die due to over fatigue! Okay, that ‘s an exaggeration! I do not know any of that case as yet. But you see, the bottom line here is that a working mother’s life is not easy. Yes, we get extra pay but the rest that we most deserve is not enough. One needs patience, tolerance and energy. I know these are not enough but that’s how moms work. We may also have to introduce to our husbands to learn how to boost testosterone levels in case they need to replace us even for a month, do you agree?

    You said it right. It was never easy being a mom, what more a working mom. Often times we feel that the everyday demands from our work to our families never stop. Thus it would be best to train and talk to our kids and husbands as well about our ” Me Time ” when, as most as possible we would appreciate if they do not disturb us with what we are doing and respect our time to be alone and unwind.

    It is only when we take care of ourselves, kindly that we can really, and freely give back.

    Nice post.
