Day In A Life Series: It's a MOOoooo life!

Friday, 5 October 2012

MamaJ over at Mum in the Making has asked me to guest post (along with 12 other different fabulous mums!) on her 'Day In A Life' series, and it has certainly been my pleasure to have made a contribution.

This series takes a 24 hour peek into a life of the Stay-Home Mum, Working Mum, and the Work-At-Home-Mum. Join us as we follow each Mum as they share with us a brief glimpse of their typical day.

There have been times since becoming a parent when people have asked me about my decision to work full time instead of being a stay home Mum to care for the boy, after which the inevitable question of the maintenance of the delicate balance of career and family life will come about.

"How do you manage?" - which usually refers to how I handle the guilt feelings or work through the events of the day while not compromising my role as a mother.

I believe that I've managed to maintain a semblance of sanity so far by not thinking too much about things. I go through some of the day's routines in an almost zombie like trance... because that's the only way I can conserve some of my brain cells for work, and have some left over for play. It's only when you start calculating the hours of the day and try to think, do or plan too much into it that you start questioning yourself - along with the others who wonder how you're able to do an effective juggling act.

  1. People can't decide what they want. To the FTWM, they ask why are you not a SAHM. To the SAHM, they ask why are you not a FTWM. But really, it's none of their business! :)

    1. Hi Cindy!!

      I totally agree... it's like some people try to judge parenting styles without even bothering to understand that each kid is different! :)

  2. You are a wonderful mummy, Regina!

    I agree with you whole-heartedly that every 'spare momment' spend with our children is the best time spent!

    We are so lucky and bless to have supportive spouses, a career that offers us diversity and most importantly, to have a family we can call our own.

    Here's to creating more memories for ourselves and families! :-)

      Thanks for having me!

      I think all Mummies will ALWAYS try to make time for their kids, no matter how old they are! ;)
