I follow a time-table. I was once a working mother abroad and I could say that, that was one of the most exhausting days of my life where I had to play 3 roles: a mom, a housemaid and a wife. Just glad that my husband is a domesticated person, so sharing the housemaid roles with him was never a problem.
My life is much easier now that I am back home. With my family around me, I can now go to the market without tagging my daughter along with me coz someone is there to look after her. Unlike before I have to request the neighbor or the nanny to look after my daughter even for an hour. But that happened only few times. There was even a time when I badly needed a haircut, and hubby was called on duty on his day off. Ah! I took my daughter with me hahhaa!
Now, I don’t have to worry about the clothes accumulated in the laundry basket. Somebody does it for us. I don’t have to worry about the dinner, my mom cooks for us. If I’m not well or need to meet paid post deadlines, I only have to ask my mom and she will keep an eye on Derelle for me. The only thing I need to do for my husband is stay up late and chat with him, so we can update each other. I don’t even need a time-table now to get myself organized. Hay! There’s no place like home…. I know this set-up isn’t forever, but at least I’ve already experienced being a SAHM with less struggles.
