Have you ever wondered how other Full-Time-Working-Moms (FTWM) cope with both family and children? Or perhaps you are contemplating switching to being a Stay-at-Home-Mom (SAHM) or Work-at-home-mom (WAHM) and you’re not sure what’s in store for you?
This Tips for Moms – by Moms guest post series was conceived to acknowledge the fact that being a mum is no easy feat, regardless of the choice we made, to stay home, work from home or work away from home.
Together with ELEVEN Singapore Mom Bloggers (that makes a total of 12 of us mummy bloggers!), we will be sharing our childcare arrangements etc. to give you a full insight as to how everything is managed and of course share tips on how to strike that perfect balance and how to preserve sanity above all things.
