A working mom schedule might help you outline the tasks you need to complete within the time you have available and require you to make less decisions.
I recently wrote a post about my working mom evening routine. It outlines the tasks that are part of the routine I follow almost every evening.
I thought it might be helpful to also detail my schedule, how long the items take, etc.
working mom daily schedule
As a working mom, here’s my daily schedule:
6:15 Wake up. Start your morning before the kids wake up. Make/drink coffee. Prayer / Bible reading.
6:30 Wake up kids. Kids dressed, medicine, wash face and brush teeth.
7 Kids grab backpacks and lunch bags.
7:07 Kids catch the school bus.
7:07-7:30 Bathroom prep / beauty routine / dressed
7:30-8 Commute to work.
6 – Arrive home from after school sports, activities, and programs
6-6:30 – 15 minutes with each child, one on one (Other child preps for tomorrow)
6:30 – 7 Prepare dinner
(while dinner is cooking) Homework
7-7:30 Eat dinner as a family
7:30-8:45 Family time
Then kids go to bed or do their own thing, depending on age.
I leave a buffer here for cuddles, getting ready for bed, etc.
