As a working mom, I keep busy. If you are a working mom, you know what I am talking about.
- You have to make sure the kids are well taken care of
- Make sure you excel in your career
- If you are married, you have to work with your husband
- Take care of any family pets
- Don’t forget the family home
And the list keeps going. Just typing it, makes me think “Wooh, we moms are superwomen!”
I consider stay-at-home working moms as well because you are also working.
More and more, I have been using my iPad to jot down notes, plan my time, and even journal.
With that, I have been using digital stickers to make my planner, diary, and notes pop. I have always loved bullet journals, so this is a way to have something similar without having an artistic bone in my body. I love art, but I am in no way an artist. Every day, I wish I was a bit artistic, and digital stickers make me have just that.
While looking for digital stickers that are tailored to working moms, I didn’t find many. The few that I found were great, but I decided that I wanted to make my own that encompassed all the areas that I feel I take care of as a working mom.
Additionally, I created digital stickers that reminded me to take a break. It is sometimes hard to do just that, and I like having a visual reminder to do it.
It doesn’t matter what your career is, you have to do some sort of planning. Also, many of us will have meetings. Therefore, there are stickers tailored for that part of the work life. With many of us still working from home, there are also stickers focused on virtual meetings.
You have to make sure that you are on top of the kids, especially when they start school and extracurricular activities. Therefore, there are stickers just for those parts of the kids’ lives that you have to ensure you are keeping track of.
In the future, I am going to add more stickers having to do with activities because there are plenty that you have to think about throughout the year.
When my kids were small, I had to make sure I knew the scouting, martial arts, and other activity schedules. It was like an art making sure that I was able to chauffeur them around without double-booking myself.
One thing that I have gotten better at is making sure I schedule some time for myself. If I don’t take care of myself, then I will be burnt out and then no one will be happy. Therefore, make sure to take care of yourself so you are emotionally, mentally, and physically able to deal with all the areas of your life.
The digital stickers are $3.99. When you order them, you will get a Google Drive link so you can download the stickers. If you have any questions or issues, please reach out to me. Check them out here.
