Stay at Home Mom not an easy job after all.

Deciding to quit my corporate job 2 years ago was an easy decision. I want to Vierte to grow up with his Dad around and I don’t want to continue having to worry about unanswered calls and messages. Friends would say that I will have sort of an easy life being out of the busy life of an 8hr job. I thought so too…but boy they were wrong! Days come and go and I would think that I have not accomplished much and definitely a few “me” time that would most often times lead to an hour or so of drama.

My housework starts at…
 530am – prepare breakfast and packed lunch
 630am – have lovely breakfast chat with C
 700am – clean up kitchen, C off to work
 800am – house cleaning (if V’s still asleep)
 900am – V have his breakfast
1000am – get back to cleaning while V watches his cartoons
1100am – V bath time, playtime with him, read books
1200pm – prepare lunch (V and I usually have left over meat and grilled veggies)
0100pm – clean kitchen, clean bathroom and bath time for me
0200pm – some tv time with V while surfing the net
0300pm – worksheet with V and nap time for him after
0400pm – start prepraring food for dinner
0500pm – cook dinner
0600pm – dinner time and C is back from work
0700pm – clean kitchen
0800pm – movie time / jog at the park
0900pm – movie time
1100pm – sleep time

that consists my daily life and soon it will change when V starts school. I am continously working on my time management skills and most of my “me time” happens inside the bathroom. And ohh btw surfing the net time happens in between housework like now I’m writing while giving V his breakfast.

Am I still happy with the decision I made 2yrs ago? YES I am! Housework may not give me a fix income but having to see my V grow up infront of me every second of the day is truly rewarding.

So being a stay at home mom is no easy job after all. I salute mom’s who can manage corporate and house work all together!

Hi, my name is Abigail a stay at home Mama of two LittleOnes and currently residing in Dubai, UAE since 2009. This is my little space online where I share activities, places we've been, food we enjoy and snippets of our daily expat life. ‘Cuddles and Crumbs’ is a combination of the two main things I share on this blog: cuddles (family) and crumbs (food).

    I love that you can still get a run in at the end of the day! I have been trying to motivate myself to do so but no luck so far.
