20 Signs You’re Definitely A Working Mom
The world has changed significantly in just a generation or two. Though our great-grandmothers and grandmothers may have had the option to raise their children at home, the US Department of Labor Blog says that “70 percent of mothers with children under 18 participate in the labor force, with over 75 percent employed full-time.” This means working moms aren’t just out there killing it in their fields, but they’re now the norm. It makes sense, too, when you think about it. Economically, most families have to have two breadwinners to live comfortably, and there are single mamas out there acting as the sole earner in the household.
Ladies, we’re all trying to find that balance between what feeds and nurtures us as individuals and prioritizing family. That’s one thing mamas who stay home to take care of the household and mamas who leave it to help take care of it have in common. Balance isn’t the easiest thing to find, but it’s so necessary in our world. Below you’ll find twenty ways you can tell you’re definitely a working mom, from knowing the best food delivery places to being an email savant-
Your Food Delivery Game Is On Point
GrubHub, UberEats, EatStreet, working mothers know their food delivery providers in the area so that, on the nights where homework, extracurriculars, and maybe even running a little late make everything tight, they can feed their families. They know what options there are, how much it’ll probably cost, and how quickly most restaurants respond to their orders. If you fall into this category, you might have the apps right on your smartphone so you can place your order while stuck in traffic, watching a swim class, or preparing for that big meeting. You have your family’s favorites lined up for the nights you’re too busy or too exhausted to cook a hearty meal and don’t want to resort to cereal (again). Do you exchange texts or emails in the middle of the day with your significant other, trying to decide what delivery spot sounds the most appetizing? Yep, you’re definitely a working mom.
