Mums you don't have to do it all! Helpling lets you find and book trusted part-time cleaners online in just a few clicks.
You are a supermum. Actually, you are more than that; we think you are kind of super human. A mum, a wife, cook, cleaner, chauffeur, official food taster, event planner, story teller, chief cuddle giver, crisis manager – and all this while you are probably managing professional deadlines too!
On most days you carry on as if this was the most natural, normal way to be. But we know that every now and then it all gets a little bit too much. We know, that at times, there are tears – and that they don’t always belong to your kids; sometimes they are yours. We know this only because because we’ve been there too.
But you know what, it does not have to be this way.
It is okay to take a break from Mummy Duties
Being a mum is exhausting. Running after the kids, staying up night after night, cleaning up after them, ferrying them all over town, dealing with their emotional outbursts, knowing when to be firm and when to cuddle – it is draining. We understand.
You need to get out of the mummy mode every now and then, and take some time for yourself. This is important not just for you but for all those who you love. You need to be able to have some peace and quiet and focus on yourself.
This helps you be calmer, more relaxed and be able to better enjoy your own home and family.
We hope that you believe us, when we say that you don't need to be perfect at everything all the time. But also believe us when we tell you that life as a mother does not also have to mean compromise after compromise.
Let us share another little secret with you: get help and get it from anywhere that you can.
Helpling is here to lend a hand
