Fun home-made pizzas for children

It has happened to most of us working mums. After a long day at the office, one of the last things we want to do is slave over a hot cooker preparing dinner, so we phone our favourite pizza place and order one for delivery. The kids love pizza, and mum gets a break. It’s a […]

Making sure a working mum’s children don’t feel neglected

Time flies when you are a busy working mum. We begin the week making promises to spend more time with family, but before we know it, the entire week has slipped by, and we’ve spent most of our time not with your children, but with work. Whether you are working out of financial necessity or […]

Staying positive as a working mum

With everything that we working mums must juggle, staying positive can be difficult. When you’re tired, stressed, and haven’t had any me time in ages, of course it’s hard to maintain a good attitude! But it’s important to fight negativity because negative thinking can easily grow into negative situations, which can translate into unnecessary problems for […]

Finding a reliable baby-sitter

It had been a long couple of weeks. Being a working mum to two young boys is exhausting! Thank goodness that the weekend was finally here, and I had some long-awaited me time planned for my husband and I – dinner and a movie – and a baby-sitter booked to look our sons at home. […]

Should working mums feel guilty?

As a working mum, you trade hours with your children for hours at the office. Whether we are working for financial reasons, for the love of the job, or both, we working mums feel guilty from time to time for our choice. I know I do! As long as we remain loving, hands-on mothers to […]

Tips for working mums who have trouble falling asleep

I often used to have trouble falling asleep come bedtime. It’s not that I wasn’t tired. In fact, as a married working mum with two sons who wakes up at 6.30 every morning, I was (and still am) exhausted! But when you are busy and engaged all day, it can be hard to turn off your brain […]

Quick and easy packed lunches for kids

As a working mum, it’s sometimes tempting to save time and energy by sending my children off to school with a store-bought packed lunch or with a few pounds of pocket money so they can buy lunch. But those meals are usually high in the bad stuff and low in the good, so I try […]

The importance of a working mum’s me time

Wake up, get ready, get the children ready, make breakfast, eat breakfast, and make packed lunches. Take the kids to school, work, pick the kids up from school, take the kids to extracurricular activities, cook a healthy dinner, eat, shower, and sleep. Repeat five days a week. My day-to-day routine is quite hectic, leaving very […]

Stress management tips for working mums

Stress is an inevitable part of being a working mum. Balancing work and family is no easy feat! But just because stress is inevitable doesn’t mean there is nothing you can or should do about it. Because stress can have negative effects on your body and behaviour, including headache, stomach upset, chest pain, insomnia, irritability and […]

Post-It Notes be gone! Tips for better organisation

Being a working mum means having an endless to-do list. Between work, the children, food shopping, budgeting, housework, family and friends, it’s impossible to keep it all in my head. But a fridge covered in Post-It Notes reminding you to do this and that is a recipe for disorganization. Believe me, I’ve tried it! The […]

Teaching children money management skills

Teaching children money management skills while they are young is extremely important. As a working mum, your strong work ethic already sets a good example for your children to follow. But giving your kids ongoing responsibilities with money such as household chores will help them develop a healthy financial philosophy, and they will be more likely […]

Boosting your baby’s brain development

It’s not simply the luck of the draw that some children are bright enough to go to Oxford or become an astronaut when they grow up. A baby’s brain begins to form within the third week of pregnancy, and there are certain things mums-to-be can do to boost your baby’s brain development, such as get […]

Healthy recipes for kids

As a working mum, you want to make healthy food for kids but don’t have the time to cook a gourmet feast every day. As a follow up to my previous post, here are two healthy meals you can prepare and stick in the fridge to be heated up later. I invested in a food […]

Survival in the water: swimming lessons for kids

As a working mum, I wanted to spend as much time as possible with my boys, Jack and Rodger. On the other hand, as I knew I could not be at home with them all the time, I also wanted them to be independent and responsible. That’s why from a very young age, I signed […]

How to clean a potty mouth

I always dreaded “the terrible twos”. Psychologists agree that around 24 months old is when children start testing their parents’ limits. They might do or say things just to see how mum will react. Part of this rebellion is the potty mouth stage. Working mums especially might find swear words hard to deal with. Since […]
