Granting my husband’s request not to work and just stay at home, I did, for a year. That was 4 years ago after we came back from Bahrain for good. But as I have said many times, being a stay at home mom is not just me and not for me. Not that I don’t like spending with my kids but having a career and compensation of your own is something else.

So I went back to the corporate world and made myself busy and occupied. I have gotten more occupied the moment I was given a marketing job that requires travel at times.

Here’s now the question thrown at me “How do you juggle it all?

I do not have a time table to follow ‘coz I don’t want to get disappointed if all fails. What I do is make up for the lost time with my kids and be with them whenever I can. It’s as simple as that. Me time comes next only if I can or I try to squeeze it in when I travel for work every after a long day.
