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.
10:15-10:30 Prep for tomorrow (including a QUICK shower)

So glad I found you! I’ve been struggling to find blogs I can relate to as a fulltime working mom (outside of the home).

Hey Stacy! So glad to have you. Please let me know if you are looking for anything in particular. 🙂
Hello. Great ideas to ensure important things are done and what things can wait.
Do you really have dinner and clean table in 30min?
This is super organized! Are you able to stick to it every day? I dream of being this routine-d but have never been great at routine…
