Finding Balance As A Working Mom

Tia & Tamera Post

This article is sponsored by The Style Network. Being a busy wife, mother and entrepreneur means wearing a lot of hats and juggling responsibilities. Close your eyes and picture the person in the circus who spins all those plates and you will see me! When you break down my main responsibilities even more, I have a son with autism who I home school, a very busy teenage girl and a husband who works crazy hours. Whew! On any given day, I can be typing a post while making pancakes, reassuring a scared little boy about a thunder storm and monitoring my daughter’s Facebook activity! When I begin to feel overwhelmed, I take a few minutes, close my eyes and do some breathing exercises. Then I remember this is the life I dreamed of and that I would not have it any other way! Are there days I drop my spinning plates? You bet there are! How do I get it spinning again with all the others? Laugh! We do a lot of laughing in our house and let me tell you; there is plenty to laugh about! Two women who also juggle many responsibilities are the gorgeous Tia and Tamera, who you may remember from one of my favorite shows, “Sister Sister”. Now the two have a show on the Style Network in which they invite us in to their lives to see how they juggle it all.

Finding Balance As A Working Mom

I love my life, but there are moments when I think I might go crazy and I am glad there are no cameras here to watch it! I love that Tia and Tamera have allowed the cameras into their lives to show people they are much like you and I. Granted, we are not on TV, but they have work, husbands and children to care for like we do. They have the same hopes, fears, struggles and victories as other moms, which I love. They are great examples of two women who are successfully are finding balance as a working mom. I especially enjoyed watching the show when Tamera was preparing for the birth of her first baby. I could totally relate! I think I love most about the show is seeing the strong bond between these sisters and how intertwined their lives are.

  1. You do a magnificent job balancing it all 🙂 Your daughters dress is lovely

  2. I hadn’t heard of Tia and Tamera before, but I will definitely have to check it out. I know it can be a challenge to balance life as a working mom – I’m a work-at-home mom. Thanks so much for sharing.

  3. Wow, I can’t believe how grown up Tia and Tamara are now! I’ll have to check out their show! As for balancing working and parenting, it’s not easy, but it can be done!

  4. I struggle every day to find that balance , some days are better than others. I haven’t seen that show but it sounds like one I would like to watch. Thanks for the contest details!

  5. It’s super hard to balance it all but I think it can be done! There are so many successful working moms out there and they are an inspiration to me!

  6. Summer is really hard for me to find balance between work and parenting. During the school year, I do my work mostly during school hours and after my son goes to bed. During the summer, he’s bored and he stays up later, so I have to try to work with all the distractions and find ways to entertain him at the same time. It’s a bit trying!

  7. Finding that balance can be a constant struggle. I don’t think I have ever seen this show. Will have to check it out!

  8. I could totally use some balance in my life

  9. Wow, I have never ever seen this show. Not even sure we get it on TV in Canada. I like the girls though. I recall them being on TV in a movie or two LOL. Great sounding show.
