It's easier said than done especially if you are a working mom. I worked my entire life and from the day on I started I loved it. Indeed I am one of those people who loves to work, one of those women who loves to leave home behind, I am one of those persons who keeps work and private separated and... I am precisely and a workaholic.
No matter where I am I do my job. At work (two jobs/employers) and at home (own boss and the housekeeping, raising, nursing, managing household job).
I have more jobs than most people, I multitask and make notes. Notes and to-do lists so I won't forget what is important to do... first. But if it comes to first, first always needs to wait because there are so many things coming in between, big and small chores mess up my plans, my schedules but it is as it is.
Broken cars, bikes, parcels not arriving which need to be traced, sad, angry, hurt or disappointed children needing attention and so do pet and does everything that's broken.
At the end of the day, not the day but my day it's frequently early in the morning. But hey, the dishes are done, floors wiped and the laundry done and everything is clean. Who needs a night rest of 8 hours right? Two should do the trick too at least for me because I am not a child anymore plus plenty of people party for 48 hours or more without sleep. True they don't have children and can sleep a day and night without being disturbed but that shouldn't mean I can't do what they do. Tired or not it's time to start the day. Time to put the kettle on and enjoy a bit of time in peace alone.

Indeed I am that mother who loves to be alone, who doesn't hug her child into pieces and doesn't follow each step her children take in amazement after all I am a working mom. I like to work, my employers are great so I never come late and work hard. Hard enough to make the difference and to forget how fast time passes. I forget my tea, don't eat because I have so many things to do. Waking up my children, checking out on them. Are all schoolbags packed including fruit and something to drink? Shoes tied coats on and bikes out the shed. It's time to leave and start the day. A quick hair comb and hug and off they go... A few minutes later I am on my way.

The clock ticks and won't wait.
Out of my sight, they are, my children. They don't have cellphones but know how to reach me, that is in case of need. They are old enough to understand what to do once back home. I am a working mom which means they spend time home alone and in case of need, some emergency they can text me. A list with codes on the wall tells them all they need to know.
How fast children get used to it, how fast they grow and no longer need me.

They are good, loyal kids with self-respect and self-esteem. Responsibility does them good. They know how to behave, act and proved they can run a household alone. They cook, clean, do the laundry and take care... Care of each other and the pets we have. They never wrecked up the place, gave secret parties or stole from me. They stick to the rules we made together and it all works out fine. I can say in all honesty I am a proud mother. I am a proud mother indeed and after all those years I no longer feel the need to work, to be a work alcoholic. I worked hard and long enough. I didn't work for two but four or more. Now it's time for me. I and my children and that's why I quit one job, gave up on my own business and reduced my working hours to have enough to stay alive.

I am alive, I should say still alive. The only thing I want for me is a bit more time and enough money to keep us alive. Enough to raise what is left of my family, those who still depend on me till the moment will come they live a life of their own. I know they will manage since they are intelligent, have goals, interests, will never be bored and have each other. There is nothing more this single mother can wish for except wishing I had spend more time with them because we are close and my besties are my children.

this is a good article. I love how you have the best of both worlds, you work hard at your workplace and you are a great mum making sure that your children leave and go to school with everything they need from their backpack to food.❤
