Working Mommies

Mom at Work
I had a career-oriented mom who was focused on the development of her business. She was a co-owner of a small company which was dealing with delivery service. Actually, she had to cope with plenty of tasks of quite diverse nature. On the other hand, she never forgot about family, we, her kids, always were thoroughly kept and the whole family had enough of attention, including delicious dinners and suppers.
And this is the point I've learned from her: how to combine family and business. She had a strict routine with a definite timetable which she always stuck to. I believe that without such state of things she wouldn't manage to succeed.
Concerning workdays, she woke up rather early serving breakfast for us and father, as well as, lunch bags for everybody, and preparing clothes for father and herself, of course. The whole day she was out. I like the idea of how my parents arranged their life. All the day-to-day routine (washing up, dusting etc.) belonged to his responsibility. In this way, mom had an opportunity to have some rest in the evening and dedicate some time to us.
Weekends were organized, as well. It was for sure that we had some events to attend. The bout of cleaning was held then. When we, children, were small, these two days were spent by the whole family together, almost without no exceptions.

Freelance Paradise

     For more than four years, I'm officially working-at-home mom. The case is that when I turned out to be pregnant I had quite responsible position in my office and had plenty of work there. And the company couldn't offer me anything easier, since they were experiencing shortage of employees and all the candidates then were inappropriate ones. To put it shortly, I quieted. However, I can't say that my husband then was on the top of career ladder, thus, to normally arrange our financial issues, I couldn't give up working at all. Here's the way of my becoming a freelance writer. I've chosen this mode of work, since it provided an opportunity to stay at home, work whenever I want according to my health condition.   
Moreover, I was always fond of writing and I decided to develop myself in this very field. After baby's birth, I was still working, since I have plenty of time at home when he was asleep. It's not much harder to bring up children being a freelance mommy. Taking into account the fact that I consider my work as a hobby. And it is great. I'm so happy that I made such a decision then. I can dedicate so much time for my family. As a break at work, I can serve a delicious dinner, as a pause, I can play with kids. What can be better for a mom?
