Work at Home Mums and Tips to Make it Work

Work at Home Mums and Tips to Make it Work

There is no doubt that mother’s have the most challenging, most rewarding, most frustrating, lowest paying but exciting jobs on the planet. Throw into the mix working from home whilst caring for your children and the word ‘chaos’ comes to mind.

I’ve been a stay at home mum since my first was born. However, I’m one of those people that need to have a project as well as the daily chores and child minding duties. From the time my first was born I’ve worked from home with little contracting positions, working from the comfort of my home on my laptop.

However in 2014, my husband and I embarked on a new journey and founded the company Sleepy Starz Pty Ltd. Our Sleepy Starz Sleep Clock had already been in the making for the 2 years leading up to the company’s creation. So, I am no stranger to working from home and yep, it’s challenging but I wouldn’t change a thing!

One of the most important things when working from home as well as caring for the children is to have flexibility. For me, this means working early in the morning, working late at night and working on weekends. It is nothing like having a structured 9-5 job where you come home and have no work on the weekends. You often do not have a quiet workspace during the daytime to complete the work you need to do on that day. But again, this is where flexibility comes into play. Working from home with children is about picking right tasks to do at certain times. For example, when the children are awake, I will choose a task where I can get interrupted and can get by without devoting my 100% attention to it. Or, I’ll do some household chores when the children are awake and playing happily and save my time when they are asleep for getting my work done. But, understand that it might not always work out the way you plan.

For me, the rewards are endless. I love being home with my children (despite the frustrations when trying to work) and seeing them play. Being able put them down for their naps, feed them their lunch and play together. For my older daughter in school, I love being able to drop everything if she needs me to pick her up from school early. The rewards are there if you are prepared to put in the hard work and frustrations of working with often no plan in place.

One of the most important things I try to practice is to put aside a certain time of day where my children have 100% of my attention to play, read, or whatever we choose. I also try to ensure that once a week we have quality family time whether it be a family bike ride, go to the park as a family, have a picnic, go the zoo….whatever, as long as we’re together!
