Time Management For Moms {Keeping It Real}

by January Harshe on November 6, 2014

I’ve been asked to write about time management. I just have two things to say about this.

1. Y’all give me too much credit.

2. School…for the kids that is.

The end.

Even still, I seem to work about a kazillion hours a week on BWF, my blog, events, being a mother, etc. But I do what I love and love what I do.

In my opinion, Time management is the same as ‘trying to find balance’ as a mother. It’s a lie. Asshole.

All we can do is take it day by day and do our best to get done what we can, let the rest go until tomorrow, and be mindful of our priorities. It’s easier said than done, so regular check ins with yourself are mandatory.

That is the best advice I can give on this. You’re doing great mamas.

This. It was absolutely my favorite part of this blog post 😉 I’m so glad a followed a post a friend had up about BWF. You have become such an inspiration and a reminder that I too am a good mom, and that I should stop second-guessing myself and being so judgy of myself all of the time. I cannot wait to see you in May when you visit Columbus 🙂

I am a 27 year old proud mom with a five month old boy named Maxwell. I follow both your accounts on instagram. I enjoy reading your posts as well as your blog. I am sitting here breastfeeding my boy while reading your blog. Its great to see a REAL mom out there giving realistic advice. I feel so empowered by your words about post partum. I never knew what to expect because I was never a mom before this. ♡♡♡ People would describe it to me in different ways but what I never realized is it is different for everyone. When I start to feel anxious about the house not being as clean as it could be or being able to tackle every task I sit down and take a breath. I hold my snuggle with Maxwell and realize this is life. This is my miracle and I am going to enjoy it. Thank you for your words and I hope to meet you at the Portland Birth Without Fear conference. Keep inspiring us ♡♡♡ @meggaman420 -Meghan and Maxwell
