very well said happiemommie. ;)

hi sis. im presently a SAHM without a yaya for 6 months now (and almost 5 months since i gave birth), i chose not to hire help coz i do not want sharing my home to a stranger, nadala kasi ako dun sa last yaya 2 yaya namin.

here are some of my tips:

1. be organized.

2. your baby's sleeping hours is precious to us mommies without yayas, dun natin pwede magawa ang ibang chores.

3. work fast.

4. ask hubby for help, like kaw mag-wash sa kids for bed siya maghugas ng plates things like that, key is TEAMWORK. same with your child if he/she is of age to help or understand responsibility, like packing away toys after playing, or make a "1 toy/ play" rule, etc.

5. minimize being makalat as well, para konti lang lagi ligpitin. i use this rule sa house "kung san kinuha, dun ibalik!"

6. prioritize. those activites that require a lot of time like washing clothes, ironing, defrosting ref, organizing cabinets etc., do them on weekends when hubby is at home para may titingin kay baby while you're doing these para tuloy-tuloy rin paggawa mo mommy.

7. lastly, you have to learn to listen to your body as well, once in awhile kung pagod kana then rest! wag mo pilitin.

hope these would help, good luck!  ;)

the word is schedule. have a schedule of things that you need to do for the day. like me ala din kameng yaya/helper. i attend to my husband's and 2kids' needs (a 3 year old and a 1year old). maganda din ang may sked/routine kase it helps in disciplining the kid/s. pag nakasanayan na kase ng kid mo na, let's say after breakfast eh bath time, in the long run hindi ka na mahihirapan na makipag-usap sa anak mo para maligo, or to sleep/nap after lunch time.
mahirap at first pero eventually makakasanayan mo na din...tayo pang mga mommy eh mga supermoms tayo hehe. kaya mo yan sis...gudlak!

OC ako. may dala akong papel everywhere I go. list down ng mga priorities.
 
madamot ako sa time, as in lahat naka schedule, lahat naka timer. kahit pag nagsasaing ako, naka timer. hehe. kaya ayoko ng  mga last minute, gusto ko lahat naka appointment. kase single parent ako pero im still a daughter and a friend.

sis before our bebe, we dont have helper. so dad and i help each other. we are both working ha. sya kasama ni kuya papasok sa sch at ako magsusundo. he choose night shift kahit nahihirapan sya makatulog para maasikaso si kuya.

sa household chores, hati talga kami. ako ang plantsa, linis. sya ang laba, luto.. ok naman sis. carry lang. basta lang magtulungan kayo..

kaya yan sis. sobrang ok pag kayo na lang (though mahirap, kakayanin..) :)

Napansin ko lang..

sonrang IBA na pala pag may Baby na (anak)

Dati, sarili ko lang iniisp ko...

pero ngayon,,, kahit magsuklay ata hindi ko na din magawa.... (lalo na pag nasa hous elang ako)

ang kilos, mabilis na... kundi mauunahan ka ng Iyak ng bata...

Minsan, aalis ako, dinner with friend or kahit ano lang... wala talaga kaayos ayos...
wahahaha.. sabi ko sa sarili ko this is not me!!!! hahaha

kelan kaya manunumbalik ang sigla sa katawan ko.. simula kasi ng nanganak ako.. yung pagiging malaks ko before.. nawala e.. madali nko mapagod.. hay.......

i'm a working mom with 2 daughters.

i use an organizer for my daily tasks at home and workplace, and future plans.  and i stick to what i've listed to do.
household chores has designated dates.  routine na yan.

my kids have their own routines, too.  and i start training them to be independent at their young age.  my eldest stopped having a yaya at age 4.  she can fend for herself.  she even helps with some chores.

everything is listed.  from grocery list, to daily tasks, to weekly chores, to weekly menu...  even the food in our ref is labeled on when it's supposed to be cooked based on the weekly menu.  even instructions for the helpers aside from their daily tasks.
 
i use the phone for canvassing things to buy, like buying meds to replenish our medicine cabinets.  i employ the "suki" system.  that way, i won't have to fall in line and waste my precious time.  i just have to pick up things i buy.
we also buy in the same supermart for our monthly groceries.  they know me and they know my system at the counter. 
 
hubby and i are also strict with the schedules.  we have to follow what we have scheduled for the day.  we both hate sudden changes in plans.

that way, everything is organized and systematic in our house and in my workplace.  i could have plenty of time for my kids, my hubby and for myself.
