My Life As Mommy And Student. 


Hey guys, happy Friday 😄

As some of you may or may not know I am a online student. I have been attending classes since before I had my son and I always enjoyed it. I always had the self discipline to do so what I needed to do as a student, so once my son was born I decided that I would continue my education. 

As a mother, being a student is very different for me. I have learned to manage my time better and get my school work done around my son’s schedule. My husband is a big help but sometimes my son just wants to be around mommy and doesn’t understand that I have to finish an assignment or study for a test. 


When my son was first born, I didn’t see a difference at all. You know, he was a little baby so he wasn’t doing much and I could take the time I need to be a student when needed. Now that he is a little older and walking and talking there’s no such thing. 

Here are some things I have learned being a Mommy and a student. 

  • Have A Schedule – I have learned that when I schedule my times to study or complete assignments that I don’t feel bad about leaving my child to do so. I usually schedule around his naps times which as worked out perfect for me. 
  • Multi-Task – At first I would feel like if I studied with him then I am taking away time to spend with him. But I have learned that it is actually including him in what I am doing. Plus he enjoys pulling his littl books out when he sees me get started with school work. 
  • Me Time – Through this whole process as mommy and student I have learned that it’s okay to take some me time. To turn my brain off from being a student and a mom and do something I enjoy like read a book or listen to music. 

Being a mom and a student is not easy but it can work. Also moms remember that it is okay to ask for help when you need it. I know we don’t like to ask for help, but we all need it at some point in our lives.
