There is no way to be perfect mom,but a million ways to be good one.
Mom is the one who can take place of everyone but no one take her place❤❤❤
Saying that ,let’s accept that it’s not at all easy to please everyone by multitasking to a level where everyone might get pleased but YOU.😞😞😞😑
So i’ll start my tips on working smartly as a working mom by following:
***First believe me that You’re doing a fantabulous job.Don’t try to multitask.
***You’re a Mom not a superwoman with multiple hands to do all kind of work together.
So,few general tips first…
1) Separate the work -Whether you work from home or run your own business or go to office.separate your home and official work.
2) Just because you are working doesn’t mean that you’ll pamper your child by listening to their unnecessary demands too after returning to them.don’t be guilty(maybe due to this judgemental society) of not staying with your kid whole day.sometimes they also need a break from you too.
Be assertive yet gentle.
I don’t mean that you authoritate them but just discipline.make a routine to spend quality time with your kid.
3)Be selfish.Take some quality time out for yourself.Make new friends.persuate your hobbies.
And the most important one.You Can’t predict future.stop worrying about how would the next day be.
#THE PRACTICAL TIPS FOR WORKING MOM
1)Write task in BOLD COLOR on a white board not in a diary or so.
2)Don’t let anyone take you for granted.Shoulder some work and responsibilties like -Making tea,getting kid ready,do utensils,pick and drop kid,the list could be endless.
3)Arrange all food stuff in transparent containers in kitchen and in Refrigerator.
4)Keep writing the consumed stuff on the notes or in the buying list on fridge through sticky notes or magnets for weekend grocery shopping.
5)Make Technology your helping hand.
Invest(if your pocket permits) in Automatic washing machine.vaccum cleaner,oven,food processor etc.Pay bill online as far as possible.
6)Be a minimialist mom
Remember three R’s.
Throw all usesless things which are of no use to you now and rest use 3Rs.
The more uncluttered the home be ,the more calm you will be.
I always make sure to atleast keep the things on place before leaving .this keeps me sane after reaching home.
Don’t take out any extra work on weekdays too😉
7)Limit screen time not only for kids but for you too.instead listen to soothing music whenever possible.
