Being a mother is a privilege, but with this privilege comes a big responsibility. Being a mother requires that you become sensible and say farewell to carefree life. As a working mother, you may even be required to say good bye to your friends in order to devote more time and energy to your kids. The ability to say ‘no’ is a big attribute of a working mom. You should keep time wasters away from yourself, because time is money. Any family member, relative or friend who wastes your time and results in diverting your attention away from core responsibilities is your enemy and not your well wisher.
I just want to clarify that this blog post has no intention of being a sexist. I write this as a way of appreciating all working mothers out there who do their best to do manage both careers and family.
Personally, I believe that women do work more than men every day. Say in situation, I start my day as early as five in the morning because I have to prepare breakfast for my son and my husband. Then, I fix the house and do the chores. Before noon, of course I have to prepare our lunch although in some occasion my husband does because he is a chef. But then, I am his best assistant. So, when all things are in order, I then start working on my computer.
I may not be working in a typical office where I have to work from 9 o’clock in the morning until six in the evening but I know how it is to juggle multiple tasks in a daily basis. I work as a fulltime mother to my seven-year old son, wife to my husband and the overall in-charge of my various online businesses. I get tired too, just like any other mothers out there working in a 9 to 6 job. But unlike some of them, I am happy and still have plenty of time to spend playing with my son and chatting with my husband.
