“My entire home used to be a mess.” “Wish you saw what Jackson’s room looked like. When all his stuff, books,and toys were littered all over the place.” “I wouldn’t have wished for anything more after having long a day at work than to walk into a tidy home, take a good shower, eat and I hit my bed.”
Ella Odenka kept on lamenting about her plight as a working mother and the stress of having to combine taking good care of her family and maintaining optimal performance at work. She can be described as a woman with many sides. She is a woman, a cook, a cleaner, a teacher, an entertainer and a helpmate. Put it all together, she is a mother. And like every other mother, she is great at multitasking. Though her life seems busy and packed up, her story is not farfetched from the ordinary.
She would wake up as early as 4:00am, first to prepare breakfast for the children and then lunch for her husband, so they could take to school and work respectively. Then she rushes with two or more chores before bathing the kids and preparing them for school after which she then rushes up and prepare for her own office. By 6:00am, she is already on the road. She would drive through the crazy traffic congestion of the morning rush hour, get to the office and ready to roll with her long To-Do-List.
The stress continues at work immediately. As a Client Service Manager in a top advertising agency, she runs up and down the various floor of the office to ensure her client’s brief is perfectly interpreted and all aspects of it delivered in good time, from Creative designs to Copy lines, to campaign planning and so on. Sometimes, while still at work, she would flashback on the kids, and try to remember if she put the right meal in the right lunch box or if she added extra diaper in her youngest child’s bag. She may even go as far as contacting their teachers to know how well they are faring in school. All these just to make sure everything is in order.
Back home, she would resume her second duty as a mother and a wife. She would dash to the kitchen and get dinner ready before Mike, her husband arrives. At the same time she bath the kids, assist with their homework and prepare them for bed. This routine burns Ella out every day and sometimes deep into the night when she thought she could heave a sigh of relief, she may still be required to take care of her husband’s special need. You know what that means right?
As a working mother, building a professional career and a family simultaneously is a herculean task. But because most women want to fulfill their dreams of being good wives and mothers, as well as intellectually sound career women, they are left with no choice than to deal with balancing both ends for as long as it takes. It is like fighting the devil and swimming the deep blue sea. Special respect to all working mothers out there!!!
But come to think of it, if a mother is not sufficiently passionate and competent on her job, succeeding would be very difficult. Besides, managing a home is tasking enough, talk less of juggle a career with it. Some women find this difficult to cope with and even quit their job.
