Another BC Blogger Meme 🙂 Thanks Yuuki for hosting this week’s Meme.
My day is a typical day for any working mother I guess. The only difference I think is that I do my work at home. And I thank God for that privilege.
My usual weekday starts at the earliest 6:00 AM and the latest 8:00 AM. Yes, there are times that I am still in bed at 8 AM (shame) because I am usually awake every two hours to breastfeed my five-month old infant. But that is the latest. If I could not get up to fix my eldest daughter for school, Ate Bea will do it for me. If the baby is awake before I wake up, Daddy will be in-charge of her for a while. But no matter how late I woke up, I see to it that before I leave my bed, I have uttered a simple and short thank you prayer.
8:00 – 9:00 – That is our breakfast time. Quite late huh! Â This is because by this time, the eldest daughter is gone to school. After the breakfast, I will bathe the little one then breastfeed her until she sleeps.
9:00 – 10:00 – I turn on my laptop. While waiting for it to boot, I’ll grab my Bible and do my morning Bible reading then pray. After which, I’ll logon to Skype – my official IM for day work, open my Outlook – my official mail client for my day work, and open my Gmail.
10:00 – 11:00 – Answer important emails and start working for day’s tasks. By 11 I have to leave my post and check if my daughter’s lunch is ready.
11:00 – 13:00 – Work again.
13:00 – 14:00 – lunch time.
14:00 – 16:00 – Work again.
16:00 – 18:00 – I usually take a break from my day time work to wait for my daughter’s arrival from school. I spend some minutes
interrogating her talking to her of the things she did in school. After the short talk, I’ll clean up little one for her bedtime. While I’m putting the little one to sleep, I’m giving Ate Bea the instruction on how to prepare the dinner.
18:00 – 19:30 – Dinner time. By this time, Baby is already sleeping. If hubby is not around, I’ll let my eldest daughter eat with Ate Bea and the other church staff. I’ll wait for Husband to arrive for dinner.
19:30 -21:00 Will wrap up my day’s work until Hubby arrive.
21:00 – 22:00 – dinner time with Husband.
22:00 – 22:30 – Devotion time with Hubby.
22:30 – Work again until I decided to sleep. Usually this is the time I do my writing assignments and blog hopping.
You may wonder who takes care of the little one while I work. I usually stand up from time to time to breastfeed her or take charge if Ate Bea could not pacify her. The little one does not have a feeding schedule yet so I squeeze it on my day’s work.
Saturday and Sunday have totally different schedules.

you are a busy mom. i wonder how you squeezed your time.
Devotion is always important in a family. I have observed that most members in BC Bloggers are working moms. I salute you!
Working moms are the busiest persons I know…I always wonder how they fit in all of that in a day. Working at home has it’s great advantages when it comes to looking after the kids.
It is endearing to know that you and your husband are still able to make time for devotions. Keep it up Sis 🙂
i am also a working from home and people seem to think that just because we are home they think that we don’t do anything but watch TV all day.
I will never be accused of that because we don’t have a television for almost a year now 🙂
A really busyy weekdays! Hope you enjoy your weekends! 🙂
good for you to have a full time in taking care of your baby. My wife does it for two months only since she has to go back to work after the maternity leave.
You are really a busy person but we have one thing in common during 10:30pm onwards hehehe
The comfort of working at home is that you can sneak and run other errands…

What’s your work sis? Thank God for internet no. We can do the things that we do while at home.

I’m truly thankful that I can work and earn at home 🙂
One busy mommy! I remember when I was still breast feeding my son, I feel like a human milking station. I admire you. You can still work all day huh!
Hi! I am still hoping I could work at home so I can take care of my son. Any tips is great appreciated. Thanks!
