Connecting you to everyone you need to help raise your child.
I am a working mum and believe me it can be a mammoth task juggling work and life together along with a four-year-old that refuses to understand anything, most of the times.
My day begins at 6:30 every day (yes, that’s way too early for some) and even by 10 in the night I have millions of things to finish and the little one is far from being wide asleep.
So, then I get on to finish the most important task of the day, which is to tell my munchkin a new story that is not similar to the one I told her yesterday, which is another tough thing to do. Don’t even ask me how I manage it every day!
However, these last four years of motherhood have calmed me as a person and I have figured out that you can actually be a super mum if you stay zen and follow a few golden rules.
Whether it is packing the school bags or getting your bag ready with important documents and making the to-do list, it is always good to be organised. Schedule a time of the day that you are free.
It’s always good to have support so that you are aware of the things that are happening around you, at school or at daycare. Having a daycare mommies group or a school group of all mums would not only keep you in the thick of things, it would also help you feel better at the end of the day.
Am sure you have that working mum guilt almost every other day. But instead of pondering over things, why don’t you assign some part of the day (even 15 minutes would do) when you spend quality time with your daughter.
Am sure even the best of super mums have screwed up under pressure. And if you happen to be one of them, relax! It’s not the end of the world. You would get it right some day for sure!
In the meanwhile as there is no point in procrastinating, laugh your heart out to let go of the stress. Believe me it works! Laughter therapy in now a part of yoga and has even cured terminally ill patients, says science. Try it out!
