Multi tasking, do everything. I m a working mother of 1. I cook, clean house. I wont say that i m a super women. I love my family so much that i put them first priority. Yes indeed it's tiring. I may not be a best mom. But i will try my best to give the very best to my family.

Able to know kids cues and multi tasking. Patience! (Which i did not have as a mum and woman) Positivity in everything, even when her world crumbles down on her.

Multi-tasking! And doing things fast! Patience is also a great help.
