Who says SAHM got lots of free time?

Mummy really can't agree with this since there's no time left to blog compare to before! Besides don't have very own laptop, initially mummy planned to update the blog at night after daddy comes back from work... but serving and entertaining the little one already made mummy long for the bed at night and no more mood to blog. Not even blog hop... so bloggers, very sorry that I seldom able to visit your blog... :( Therfore, I wonder how others SAHM able to cook and take care of the family? This is really a toughest job in the world and I think if motherhood is a profession, it must be categorized into a very high paid job!


Still need to squeeze time for learning to cook besides being the slave for En En, this little girl doesn't seems prefer mummy's company all the time. She will screams: "Mummy, go away!!!" when she wants to play with kakak or Ah Mah. There's really nothing much changes that she will clings to me more after I stay at home with her... Is there something wrong with me? Am I not loving and caring enough as a mother? Just feel miserable when others accuse that I'm not a good mother for my gal...

Lotus here:)

I guess it frees you up to do other stuff if she doesnt want to cling on to you. Hmmmm I know your dilemma... maybe start trying a routine at home? That's how i find time to cook & clean & work and play with Abi. Hope you find something that works for you.

Anyway, don't feel guilty about not blogging or bloghopping, your family comes first, and this is a period of adjustment for you. Take it easy on yourself, you'll be back to blogging soon. :)

hey...no worries lah, it takes some time for her to get use to it.

Yeah... don't be too hard on yourself. En-En is used to her kakak and Ah Ma, so it'll take time for her to realize that mummy is home everyday.

The job as an SAHM is definitely the most rewarding one ever, that's for sure.

Lotus: Do you know I really salute you? I still can't figure out how you manage the 24 hours so well with so many interests and a kid in the house! You don't even have a maid, right?

jazzmint: How not to feel worry leh?

mamaline: hopefully...

Wei, nolah, I'm not a supermum LOL. I have some up days where I do lots, and some down days where the house is a mess, and dinner is not ready by 7pm. Step by step, do things little bit at a time, sikit-sikit, lama-lama jadi bukit! :)

Actually if I had a choice I would love to have a maid at home, even part-time.

But cost of labour in Aust is very high, I would end up paying a lot of money to hire one.
Actually not many people in Aust can afford to hire maids. If they work outside they pay for childcare during office hours. After work still have to cook, clean and look after the kids! I cannot do that.

Do you know, the people I really salute is those single mums with 2-3 kids having to work fulltime and support themselves and their kids! Supermums indeed! :)

just take yr time adjust to this transition. I am sure En En will be clingy to you later.

Agreed. It is not easy to be a SAHM, more work and stress than joining work force, for sure.
