Work Life Balance – Ask a Mom How to Do It! — 27 Comments

  1. The biggest truth is that a Mom will know the balance between what is most important and what can wait until tomorrow….or the day after that. Balance is about what’s important – and a Mom has the experience to know what order to put the substance of life into! Great post and reminder!

  2. This is the truth!! Always ask a mom that has her ducks in a row. She will know how to help you out or at least lead you in the right direction.

  3. Right now I’m a SAHM but I used to work 8/10 hours, when my kids were little and my house was clean, the homemade food on the table and I had time to help them with homework and play with both. To be honest not sure how I did it.

  4. For me it has been coming to the understanding that I can no longer be 100% invested everywhere. Making choices and prioritizing has been the key, and took a lot more time to find than what I’d expected! Such a challenging issue.

  5. It depends on the mom’s personality if that would work for me. My sister-in-law is the most organized, efficient do-it-all person I know and I admire her, but she’s way too high-strung and regimented for me.

  6. I am a mom to 5, it’s all about juggling and balancing. A lot does not get done! My house is not always clean but there is time for that when they are grown and out of the house.

    • When I don’t get everything done, I just shrug my shoulders and say “tomorrow is another day.” I am happy for what I do get done.

    • Most people who do not work at home do not understand how hard it is when to get work done when everyone thinks you are at home watching TV and not actually working.

  7. I always thought I was good at balancing work and home life, then I became a mom. Now I’m excellent at it, and better than ever at multi-tasking.

  8. Great post. Sometimes good enough is good enough. You can’t do it all and do it all perfectly. There are days when I feel like a winner just because I got it all done at all!

  9. This is a great post! It’s so hard to balance it all, but every day it seems to get done 🙂 Moms rock!

  10. Some days I have no idea how I do it. It just happens and I am thankful it does.

Tell me what you think.
