There's a group of service providers that every mom needs to have in their contacts. For me as a mother working outside the home, these are the people that make up my team
- A contractor you trust to be alone in your home - for renovations
- A good handyman who's willing to work weekends (plumbers and electricians are critical)
- A babysitter who familiar with the kids and willing to work evenings and/or weekends - for the occasional date nights, Christmas parties etc.
- An auto service that either allows overnight drop-offs or offer a shuttle service - without this, you'll end up spending precious weekend hours waiting for an oil change
- A list of grocery stores with shopping cart accommodations for 2 kids OR a grocery delivery service
- Doctors that work weekends or late hours - this is a bonus that's not always possible
I'll be writing about being a working mother throughout October and sharing my personal experiences. Emphasis on personal. I realize that everyone's situation is different and what works for me may not be the best for someone else.
