Ahhhh If you didn’t know that it’s 2014… Let me help welcome you……. HELLOOOOOO IT’S 2014 (in the most sarcastic voice you could ever imagine)…… and in this day & age…. what has become more common… is the age of #WorkingMoms 🙂
We are still the first ones awake, and the last ones to go to sleep. But , now in-between we work 9 to 5’s , we cook, we clean, tend to our families… and ourselves (when time permits). Its a new day and age. I remember my Grandma (Momma) working just to buy Minks, Sunday hats…and purses.. and that’s about it. She didn’t “have” to work. My Granddad (Daddy) worked his butt off and took care of an entire family of FIVE. Now, because of the high cost of living …. EVERYWHERE….. that is not as common as it was in the past. Both parents work, they have to. They work together to reach a common ground…. making sure that their households are fully functional, and that the children within… want for nothing.
I’m a mother of 2 and a soon-to-be Stepmom of my 3rd, and my goals are simple:
1. Make sure God is always first in our household
2. Be a strong support system to my Family
3. Never let Work/Money become more important than my Family!
It’s really easy to get so caught up in working that you forget…their are people at home that need ya! There has to be Work/Life Balance. I have been BLESSED beyond belief to get to work for a company that supports Family. Mat Ishbia the CEO of USFS supports the Work/Life balance theory. He has created a culture that challenges every employee to work their 8 hours… the full 8 hours and then GO HOME!! They don’t enforce mandatory overtime. They enforce working your given shift…They want you to maximize all of your time while your at work.. as opposed to lolligagging… and wasting the time that you actually have to be there anyway. I love it. I’m excited to go to work…and I’m excited to go spend time with my family when my work day has ended.
My fiancé and our children understand…#WorkEthic… we all push each other, and we know and understand what each persons role in the house. It’s ok to be a #WorkingMom in 2014. You just have to maneuver it in… and get everyone to help out in the process.
So just in case I don’t get tell all you wonderful Moms out there….. On Sunday…..
Whether your a Working Mom….or a Stay At Home Mom……either way your title is #SUPERMOM soooooo
HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!!!
