Balancing it ALL
Being a mother is a challenging and rewarding experience, but being a mother of six can feel like an overwhelming task. However, with the right strategies and a positive attitude, it is possible to balance the demands of raising a large family and maintaining a healthy work-life balance.
One of the most important things for me as a mom of six is to prioritize and focus on the most important tasks first. This means setting clear boundaries between work and personal time, and creating a schedule or to-do list to stay organized. I also make sure to seek support from my priest, my husband, my family, and my friends as well as make time for myself, such as exercise, hobbies, and relaxation.
Another essential strategy is to set realistic expectations for myself and my family. I understand that it is impossible to have everything perfect all the time, and it is important to communicate effectively with my husband and the children to share responsibilities.
I also make sure to take care of my physical and mental health, and don’t hesitate to ask for help when needed. I always try to make time for activities I enjoy like doing my nails, taking nice warm baths, skin care, crafting, reading and spending time in nature.
One of the most challenging things about being a mom of six is finding the time to give each of my children the individual attention and care they need. To overcome this, I make sure each child has day of the week to have what I’ve been calling Kid Connect Time. A 20-30 minute block of time once a week on their given day to do a special activity or quality time with me each week. This could be something as simple as reading a book together or going out for ice cream.
In addition, I make sure to communicate with my children and set clear expectations for their behavior and responsibilities, this helps to create a sense of teamwork and promotes a positive relationship with them.
Links for things mentioned in the video!
Amazing Mama skirt! Very long so order depending on your height. It is very stretchy and forgiving at the waist. I have this in many colors. Its very lightweight but I am able to wear it in all seasons and temperatures!
Floral Socks! these run true to size. I’m a size 10 and took a risk and they are a bit tight to slip on but still work!
Mama Ear Plugs! These are a must for those overstimulated moments or when the kids are just bouncing off the walls. You can still hear but it takes things down a few decibels…
With the right strategies balancing life as a mom is possible
Overall, being a mom of six can be a demanding and challenging task, but with the right strategies and a positive attitude, it is possible to balance the demands of raising a large family and maintaining a healthy work-life balance. Remember to prioritize and focus on the most important tasks first, seek support, make time for yourself, and set realistic expectations, with EVERYONE.
It is important to remember that everyone’s situation is different and what works for one person may not work for another, but with a little bit of flexibility and willingness to try new things, you can find a balance that works for you and your family.
