Whether you’re a working mom or stay at home parent each job is time consuming, but has its benefits. The one thing that many households get behind on is the house cleaning. Is this your issue too?
According to an article at pregnant.thebump.com, “We Just Can’t Do It All”
“When both parents work outside the house, you two are on equal footing. Having worked at home and had periods of full-time mom duty, I’ve learned that the person at home during the day is also implicitly expected to keep the house clean, cook the meals, take the baby to the doctor, sign the kids up for activities, make sure there’s toilet paper, and on and on. When you both work, you’re in the same boat (with the same lack of free time), and there’s none of that guilt that comes with not bringing in income. Duties will probably be more divided, and you’ll likely feel like a team (it may seem like one that loses a lot, but it’s a team nonetheless).
Weekends won’t feel like weekends
Actually, for any mom, weekends are a crock. It’s not like you’re sleeping in or spending hours at the gym just because it’s Saturday. You’re trying your best to be a cheerful, involved mom spending quality time (read: activities) with the child you’ve barely seen all week, even though you’re completely exhausted. Plus you’ve got to do all that laundry, grocery shopping and dry-cleaning-dropping-off that you haven’t had time to touch all week. And you should probably finally get that dusty, squished-Cheerios film off the floor.” To read the entire article click here.
