Can You Be A Good Mom, Wife & Work Too?

Wow, that's a lot of hats to wear. Yet many stay at home moms are able to do it everyday. How is it possible when you consider all that a stay at home mom has to do? At any given day, a stay at home mom is juggling multiple task such as watching the kids, cleaning the house, making all the meals and then has to find enough time to squeeze in some money making activities all while still trying to look cute for your Hubby. (That last one is still important ladies. lol) Keep in mind I only covered a fraction of what stay at home moms do in a given day. 

You literally have to be a super mom to make it all work. So do you really think you have what it takes? Are curious to see how other super moms handle it?  Here's a peak at what it may take (Click on the image below to enlarge):

    One thing people (most people being the WAHMs themselves) forget is that we are not superheroes, we can’t do it all, we shouldn’t try to do it all. Being organized, self-disciplined and prioritizing are the best ways we can keep from going nuts (for lack of a better word). Family and friends around you who support and encourage what you are doing and who can help you when you stumble are the best tools you can have in your arsenal.

    Working at home is not easy but it can be so rewarding. There are days when I wonder why I am doing this~the odd hours, the messy house, the multi-tasking, the exhaustion~then my kids come in and just give me a hug for no reason and I remember why I am here.

    We do not have to keep up with the Jones’ of the world. Other than the work area, if you regularly have clients over, its OK to have the house be messy and the dishes pile up some days. We are doing this so that we can have the simple moments with our family. Work at home women and men need to be remember we are our kids’ superheroes even if we can’t do it all.

    It really is a juggling act and in the summer it gets tricky! I like to take my son to work with me, I clean and organize, but am finding that my away from home days are longer. Because I am caring for my child while I am working :) as far as working from home goes, he is learning that when mommy is on the phone or helping to accommodate the schedule of others, he knows silence is golden but I’m a work at home mom for a reason. To spend more time with my son! I’ve never been on a call when someone turned down an offer due to my family in the background. It’s really a win, win! I love the steps you laid out! I haven’t made an office as of yet for myself, but I know that is going to change this summer. My hubby may just have to share his for a bit!

      Cori,
      You’re very fortunate to have your son trained so well. My daughter just runs around the house screaming at the top of her lungs for no good reason at all. Thank goodness everything I do is online but it still makes it hard for me to concentrate at times. So I applaud you!

      I’m glad you like the infograph and the steps laid out. Having any type of home office is key. For a year or two I didn’t have one and I wasn’t very productive. So you’ll be surprised to see how productive you are if you do have one. Tell your husband sharing is caring. lol

      Thanks for chiming in.
