- Welcome to the fourth day of Write Tribe Festival Of Words – #WTFOW.
Day 4 (8 Aug/Tue) – Feature a day in your life or someone else’s life
No day seems to be the same for anybody. And no wonder it’s not the same any moment for a mom and a blogger too. Have you ever wondered what a typical day in a mom blogger’s life look like?
Today we have with us a mom blogger. She is ambitious. She has dreams and strives to achieve it. Her confidence is her biggest strength. She is determined to overcome the struggles of life and scale the heights of success.
Here are the excerpts of a spirited conversation I had with her. Now, over to her to have a sneak peek in to the day of a mom blogger ……

A Typical Day In A Mom Blogger’s Life – Shalu Sharma
We all play multiple roles in our lives. Sometimes their roles come at different phases in our lives while for some of us we play multiple roles every day, every moment we live. I too play varied roles in my life – the roles of a mother, a wife, an employee, a citizen etc. This is how a day in my life looks like managing all these roles.
The Housemaker – My day begins as a mother of tornadoes, getting up before my kids could & making sure I am done using the washroom, as once my kids get up, there is no way I can have a minute to myself even for nature’s calls. From the moment both my girls get up till the time they are sitting inside the play-school van, it seems like there’s a cyclone at home. As soon as kids leave, it feels like the storm has passed & I feel like going back to bed – well if only I could.
The Feminist – I keep aside some time to have a proper breakfast before my work as an employee begins. My role in my current organization is to tie up with different corporates & help them design and implement Maternity Benefit policies, Gender Sensitization policy and other policies & support required to ensure that the female employees of the employees reach their optimal productivity & phases like maternity break etc. do not become a hindrance in it. I love the profile as it gives me an opportunity towards creating an equal right working environment for all genders.
The Supporter – Mine is a flexible working job, thus by the time I am back from work, it’s afternoon & my daughters are already back from the playschool & are either ready to sleep or already sleeping. I work on some pending mails and communications while they nap. Once they are up, I take one of my daughters to therapy. She has Asperger’s Syndrome due to which she lacks social & communication skills & thus needs to undergo Occupational therapy and Music therapy. I have to be there to ensure that I too help her in achieving her development goals.
The Mother & the Wife – My evenings are dedicated to my kids. We do a lot of age appropriate developmental activities throughout evening & enjoy our time together. Reading books, learning new things, art, craft & painting, cooking together & having a lot of fun – that’s the main essence of my evenings. Once my husband is back home, we all have our dinner together & spend some time together talking about our day, plans etc.
The Entrepreneur & The Change-Maker–Once my kids are asleep, It’s the time I look forward to during the whole day. Call it me time or call it my passion hour, I do what I love the most. I read work of other bloggers on topics of my interest. I spend some time writing on topics that inspire me, create passion in me or sometimes write to share experience with the world. I also love to create Tie & Dye fabrics, thus once in a while I spend time creating those as a part of my small Business – Dikri.
Well, this is how a regular day in my life looks like. But every once in a while the days are full of travel & outings with family, time out with friends & like-minded people, binge reading & movie watching.
What’s your typical day look like? Please share with us …..
