Being a Full Time Mom - Now I Know...

December 13, 2011 3:01am CST
I always hear that being a full time is not easy. Now I know that what they say is true. I sleep late at night, because i just can't sleep while my baby is still awake. Even when she's beside me and just playing, i couldn't just take a nap. At times I need to wake up early because i need to prepare her bath and do the household chores. Going to work everyday is easier than being a full time wife and mom. Sometimes i want to give up and just get a househelper. But, if giving up means that my baby will not be taken cared of as much as i do, then, i shouldn't. I love my baby so much, and I will endure this..... for her...

I can certainly understand, and agree with you. I have a one-month-old daughter, and am also a full-time mom. It's definitely not easy to be one. I'm not complaining at all. I enjoy being a mom, and wouldn't trade my daughter for anything. But it's not always easy to do. At the end of the day, my daughter is worth it, all the sleepless nights, feedings, diaper changing, and all. She's worth it.

I hope you won't let it get to be too much for you. Better to get a househelper than to get sick. It is hard work. There are things you can do to make it easier on yourself. Shorter steps. Like setting up your home so it is easier to do things. And having things ready the day before if possible.

Hiya jasmin, Really hard to be a full time Mom. You have to rest some time yes. I could never sleep while mine was awake either but he did cry an awful lot so sometimes I would be falling asleep without being able to keep my eyes open.xxx As the months go by things will get easier in many ways and more complicated in others. All part of them growing up but you should be able to sleep better later on at least I hope so.xxx

being a full time mom is very tiring but yes it is exciting too. A house helper may not show the love and affection which a mother has for her child. Moreover it's just these initial years where you are making lovely bond by spending time with each other. Later on both kids and moms get busy with their lives.

I agree with you. Being a full time mom is the most difficult job in the world. Because you hardly have your own time or have a break. And you don't have holiday. You work 24 hours a day. I love China

You did the right thing. Choosing to be a full time mom is really difficult. But- you will never regret it. You will not miss all your babies activities once she grows up and you can relay to her every details when she is ready to listen or ask you something about when she's still a baby.

Mom is a mom and no one can be compared with a mom,,,because the real love can only be delivered by a mom.And child also understands the true love and affection of a MOM this is all natures wonder. Children should always be frown with mothers love....so that they will be healthy and grow well.

dear, you are a loving mother so I know you will continue taking good care of your baby until she's a little bigger, then at that time you can let her go to the nursery or kindergarten. It is without saying that your being with your baby during her younger years is of utmost important for her physical and psychological health. She needs your milk which is the most nutritious food, she needs your tender care and see you every day. But after a year or two, you can have your family to take care of her and maybe find a job to do, but make sure that it is not that tired and you can go back home on time to talk with your baby. Being a mom is the hardest thing in the world, and it is also the happiest. Mom dedicate a great lot to their kids and I'm forever grateful for what my mom did for me. I'm planning to take mom for a travel outside to fulfill her biggest wish, and I believe that would be the greatest happiness for me.

I have 2 children but I never had a a househelper even if I am working in an office. Maybe I am just lucky that me and my husband have different work schedule and my mom and also my mother in law is filling us in everytime we are not available. That's a good decision that you are staying home for your baby. Both of you are very fortunate that you could afford to stay at home. That is my lifelong wish and I'm still hoping that I could do that for my children too. Yes, it is a very tiring job but very rewarding too. I hope you will stay to be a dedicated time until the time that they will go to school. I could assure you that guiding them and seeing them to have achievements in school will make you very happy. Goodluck and enjoy being a full time mom!

Yes , become a Mom is the most greatest thing that can happens to women, but, its a full time job , its really exausted, sometimes is depressing because we give up to our personal life, there is no more ME, all is about the kids , I have two boys and I give thanks that they are not babies anymore, they are 9 and 4 years old, and now we can sleep at night and they go to school ,but , still they demand a lot of time, I have to look for activities for them to do on weekends (even I dont feel like(. When they were babies I had a very hard time but , I had some help in my country, now I live in another country I am doing everything in the house and plus the two kids , when its 9 pm at night I am really really tyred I want to write more in mylot , but, simple I cant I am tyred and have to go to bed , since , we have to get up early to take them to school, and like that everyday. I love my kids too, and I am trying to do my best also like You are doing it, one day we will have more time for us. keep on , you are a great mom. greetings from taiwan.

What a good mother are you! I think, mother is the most powerful heroine in the worl forever. I do believe that there is no good sons without mother besides them. She will do anything for her children goodness although she was so tired and have less energy to do it. She also has unlimited time, money and love for her children. Feeding milk her baby and making her baby so comfort on her hug. There is no money that can charge her existences in the world. So, I always admire mother. I give you 4 thumbs up for you and all of the mothers on the world for your act. Keeping on spirit for you, your service for your baby is so valuable.

Being a full time mom is difficult, as they say. but the experience we had to our children is once in a lifetime, they will grow fast, and then you know it, they are with their friends. so, don't regret to be with your baby now. Full time mom, must be full of patience.

At least, when you are a full time mom, you can sleep to catch up with the lost sleep, when the baby sleeps too. But with me, it's different. When my daughter was just a baby, i would wake up at night to let her have her milk. I would wake up to change her diaper, because during that time, disposable diapers are not in the market yet. The nanny will take over when in the morning as i prepare myself to go to the office . So, in the office, i would be working sleepily. But it's a good thing , that my husband would alternate with me in waking up at night to feed our baby and change diaper, though.
