Name: Editor Do you feel like your life is one mad rush? Rushing to office and back, to your child's school, to drop a relative to the airport, to shop for groceries... Phew! Being a working mother is not easy. How do you find a balance?

Subject:  A full time maid for a working women.
Hi everyone,
how far does a full time maid help?

My working hours are from 8AM to 5PM. i will be away from home from 7AM to 6PM.

i get up at 5Am, prepare breakfast,lunch. Evening, most of my time goes in feeding my 2yrs 5 months son. then prepare dinner,preparations for morning etc etc.. feel like running away from all these.

i have a servant maid for sweeping,cleaning the floor,utensils and washing cloths. but still i get very tired. i have to spent time for studies also which i am not able to do.

i want to know, how far a full time maid will be helpful? I myself want to do all the works of my son though(bathing,feeding,entertaining him..:-)) .

i heard there are lot of problems with a full time maid.. pls let me know about them?Any idea about such agencies in bangalore and what are their charges?

want to make some time for myself..
pl suggest how?

Thanks,
KK

Do you have inlaws at home ? I have 8 months old child and inlaws at home and I am working full day. so i have kept my baby with them but kept full time maid since they told they cant look after the child. I feel till one year you should avoid keeping in cresh due to infection but after that u can keep since major vaccinations are over.

Subject:  yes life is so demanding
i do agree managing house, job, in-laws and two small kids is such a difficult task. sometimes you feel that break down point has reached but when you look at the face of your smiling kids everypain, agony, anger vanishes . They are the best things in this whole universe... they are so pure, majestic, energetic and innocent . always provide unconditional love to everybody .
I am working too and my schedule is very hectic. Waking up at 6 after attending needs of 6 month old kids whole night ... preparing lunch, b/fast for 2 year old and in laws. Then leaving the house at 8 for work , dring on delhi' s road for one hour reaching office . doing work , coming back to home at 7 pm .again feeding feeds alternatively ...
Then purchasing grocery, vegetable, house hold items etc. So some how managing the responsibilities and duties .... So life of a working woman is so demanding and tough
Regards,Maya

Subject:  Yah! It´ s challenging but full of life
Yah, Week days are a bit of RUSH! But generally few things if we take care its is much more rewarding and makes life easier.
1. Dropping child to school yourself instead of opting bus services gives lots of time to spend exclusive with child everyday.
2. We are most of the day time away from our kids, so spending quality time becomes much more important and I feel if we spend quality time even for 2-4 hours daily with them, it gives us lot of fullfillment and child is also a very happy child.
3. discippline is one part which our children learn automatically as there is no space for the not having it.
4. Hire maid for complete support at home(Cooking, cleaning etc..), so that maximum out of office time can be spent with kids.

It is tough for working mother, but at the same time balancing both is not difficult. Generally I follow all the above mentioned things and I am able to balance all my roles in my life.
