HomeWorking MomFamily Life Work BalanceWork Life Family Balance April 19, 2011 Work Life Finding a work, life & family balance is possible, but don’t expect perfection. Those are my words of wisdom for anyone trying to find the PERFECT work life balance. There is no such thing as perfect. As a full-time working mom with 3 children (and I am pregnant with my 4th) – I am happy to say that I still haven’t quite figured it all out. I’m happy to say that because, I have yet to meet anyone who has the perfect answer to being a working mom. But I do have some words of wisdom that can help you along the way. I often talk to friends who are re-entering the work force after being home with their children asking all types of questions. There are LOTS of questions and LOTS of moms returning to the work place. I am hoping to be able to answer your questions and provide helpful tips to make this work life balance thing not SO bad. There are several of us working moms at the office. We all share anything we can that helps one another, whether it be a sitter who is flexible with hours, or a recipe that helps save some time – sometimes learning tips and tricks of other moms is the best thing you can do to help keep on top of what you can. The work life aspect is something that I have been looking to cover for a long time here on digital mom blog, and i’m happy to get this in motion. The most important thing is for this to be beneficial for YOU – the mom who is BUSY. The mom who feels the burden and responsibility to carry all that you do. In order to make sure YOUR questions and concerns about work life and family are answered, I’ve created a form where i’ll be answering your questions. Just click the button on the side bar that says “Work Life Family – ASK YOUR QUESTIONS” and I’ll do my best to answer with confidentiality either on the blog or in private. Working and being a mom is HARD. But here is something silly but much needed for you — here is a virtual high-five. You Can Do IT! Do share any tips and tricks you have learned along the way! Looking forward to sharing my adventure and learning about yours as we all try to find our zen with balancing work life and family. Don’t forget to ask your work life family questions! 3 Responses Sarahlcoleman April 19, 2011 This is an important post for me. I reentered the work force 3 years ago when my youngest went into Kindergarten. It was important for me to have us on a schedule- meals, cleaning, laundry etc… Meal planning in advance is HUGE for me. I have learned more about making grocery lists AHEAD of time, freezing meals, advancing our palettes and so forth. Reply Amanda E April 19, 2011 I totally needed that today! I don’t feel guilty about going back to work, I just want to make sure she is well taken care of while I’m there. I’m thankful that I get to work with all the great Moms at WoF! Keep the advice coming! Reply 1300 Numbers February 1, 2012 Terrific work, please keep writing it was a joy to read. I’m going to link to this now.
