How Can a Mommy Have Partner, a Career and Kids?
It is an impossible job that working moms have to take on, to be completely dedicated to working and home. As an employee or a mother, it may be frustrating and thankless, being viewed as not completely present. But it doesn’t need to be like this. If you learn to find a balance that works for your life, it is possible to follow a rewarding full-time career while taking an active role as a mother. Preparation is needed for all fantastic trips. As a busy mother, your journey is no different at all. For fewer hours a week, you will be the better parent; it’s not about how much time you will spend at home, it’s about how you are using them. And you can hug your new lifestyle today!
Here are some tips
- Be more organized: When you write everything down, it helps us keep track of everything we need to do for the day, the week, or even the month. Whenever we get forgetful, we can return to those notes and don’t have to think about ever missing something, so long as it gets written down in those notes. The to-do list can also be prioritized so that you know what has to be completed first, and you can address the list in that order.
- Use hacks: It’s high time to implement those hacks which you always see on various platforms- like YouTube, Instagram, or any other social networking sites. Use kitchen hacks or home maintenance related hacks, which will save up your time. After all, time is everything mommies!
- Preplan every weekend: plan a date night or a friends’ evening on weekend, spend extra time with your kids. This is your fuel; don’t let your tank run empty. Prepare the meals and who’s preparing them for every detail of the week’s schedule. This would decrease friction, alleviate anxiety and save time.
- Take good rest: To keep your body and your brain moving optimally, sleep is important. You would not be the best version of yourself without it, and it will take a toll on your personal life, as well as on your future.
- Don’t be hard on yourself: But don’t be so harsh on yourself when you eventually make minor mistakes, make wrong choices, or even mess up entirely. Only human you are. Just keep doing the best you can do where you are for what you have, as that’s what you can do humanly.
- Seeking providers of childcare you know: knowing that your child is taken care of is important when you are at work, you have peace of mind. Seek your kid’s daycare, nanny, or someone you know who you trust. Flexible hours, a low teacher-to-child ratio, a safe and spacious environment, and up-to-date permits should be available for quality daycare.
The last thing to keep in mind while you bring these new lifestyle changes, you must focus on the good aspects that contribute to your families in your work life. Be assured that for your entire family, including yourself, you are making the right decision and your child will know the depth of your affection and appreciate your sacrifice.
