Hey there! It's Arianna, your favorite tutor and supermom. Today, I want to share with you the joys of motherhood and how I manage to balance my career as a tutor at Grillo Parlante with the responsibilities of being a wife and mother. Life can get pretty hectic but trust me, it's all worth it in the end.
The Daily Juggle
Morning Rush Hour
Mornings are always chaotic in our household. With two kids to take care of – Emma who is 8 years old and Lucas who just turned 4 – getting everyone ready for school feels like running a marathon every day. From waking up early, preparing breakfasts that meet their picky eating preferences (kids these days!), packing lunchboxes filled with nutritious snacks, ensuring they brush their teeth without making too much mess...phew! It’s no easy task.
Once we've successfully navigated through the morning rush hour madness, it's time for me to head off to work at Grillo Parlante. As much as I adore my job as a tutor helping students reach their full potential academically, leaving my little ones behind tugs at my heartstrings every single day.
But here’s where having an amazing husband like Alex comes into play - he supports me wholeheartedly by taking charge of drop-offs while managing his own busy schedule as an architect. We make sure our schedules align so that one parent can always be present for important milestones or emergencies when needed.
Finding My Passion
I have always had an affinity for teaching since I was young; watching students grow intellectually brings incredible joy into my life. Being able to impart knowledge on young minds fills me with purpose beyond measure.
Additionally , working alongside other dedicated tutors like Lucia at Grillo Parlante adds an extra layer of fulfillment to my professional life. We share ideas, lessons learned and support each other in our quest to make a difference in our students' lives.
Hurdles Along the Way
As much as I love my career, there are moments when guilt creeps up on me like a sneaky little monster. The feeling that I am not spending enough time with Emma and Lucas can be overwhelming at times. However, I remind myself that pursuing my passions is setting an example for them - showing them that they too can follow their dreams while being loving parents.
Managing time efficiently has become paramount in maintaining balance between work and family life. To ensure quality time with Alex and the kids, we have set aside dedicated hours every day where electronic devices take a backseat – no distractions allowed! It's during these precious moments when we bond over board games or simply enjoy each other's company without any outside interference.
Cherishing Family Moments
Weekends are sacred for us; it’s all about creating unforgettable memories together as a family unit . Whether it’s going on nature hikes or picnicking by the lake , we make sure to unplug from technology so that we can truly connect with one another .
Maintaining a healthy relationship with Alex is crucial amidst the chaos of parenting two young children . We try to carve out some alone time whenever possible - whether it’s going out for romantic dinners or enjoying quiet evenings watching movies after putting the kids to bed . These date nights rejuvenate our souls and keep our love alive .
In this whirlwind journey called motherhood , balancing work commitments alongside nurturing relationships within your family requires dedication , patience & resilience . Yes, there may be days filled with exhaustion but seeing smiles light up faces makes everything worthwhile . So here's cheers to all the supermoms out there who are juggling multiple roles and still managing to bring their A-game . Remember, you're doing an amazing job! Keep shining, keep inspiring and never forget that your love is what makes this world a better place.
