The Art of Juggling Work and Mummy Duties

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.

No, I don’t have a house help. I do everything in the house by myself. So, what is my secret? Here, let me tell you.

Set Priorities – Before I decided to become a stay-at-home mom, I already have my goals in life. Primarily, I just want to be the best mother to my son and a supportive wife to my husband. Working actually is just a bonus, although I have to admit that working online has been a significant source of our income. In fact, my various online streams of income are the reasons why our family is enjoying a comfortable life. So, my point here is – do what you love to do. If you have to work then go to work but keep in mind that you still have other priorities besides your work.

Time Management – This is very much related to setting your priorities. If you know where you stand and what you want to achieve for yourself and for your family. In my case, I have no problem with time management because first I don’t spend hours traveling from the house to the office, or spend an hour for two preparing for work. I am lucky enough to be able to have breakfast, lunch, snack and dinner with my family. But don’t think spend less time managing my online businesses. I never fail to update my blogs and websites. But because I work whenever and wherever I want, I can do all the chores and the morning and work while my son is at school or when he is asleep. Sometimes, I work during wee hours and I like it because it is when my mind is secreting its creative juices.

These two are basically the things that I always adhere. You and I may have different priorities but being a working mother, we must learn how to juggle work and our duties at home.

Thanks for reading my blog post and I hope you enjoy our work from home moms blog.
