Busy moms need all the help and advice they can get. So here’s one parenting advice from a busy mom, Sheryl Crow.
Who doesn’t know Sheryl Crow? She is an American musician, singer, and song writer. He song, All I Wanna Do, form her debut album, Tuesday Night Music Club, became a big hit. She has sold millions of albums worldwide and has also appeared in television shows. In additional to that, she is a mom to young boys.
“The rocker has traded in her Tuesday Music Club for an easy like in Nashville with her two sons, six-year old, Wyatt and three-year old, Levi.”
Just like any other mom, her hands are full. With two young sons and a music career, one wonders how she does it.
This Celebrity Mom Says No
The thing about busy moms is that they all think they can do everything. But this busy mom is not afraid to say, “no”.
“Although she seems like she’s pretty laid back, this self-professed, quintessential working mom runs a pretty tight shift. Her advise for other moms, ‘Don’t be afraid to say no.’ ”
It’s hard for busy moms to say no. Somehow, they think they have all the power to do everything. They work full-time, do the household chores, and make sure the kids are taken care of. And when someone asks for a favor, a busy mom’s reply is no more than a one-liner that goes, “Sure, I’ll take care of it.”
Having said that, anyone would think that celebrity moms would have all the time, effort, and energy to do other things. But then, this is not the case for our celebrity mom, Sheryl Crow,
“They’d have to understand that somebody is in charge and sometimes the answer is no.”
Busy moms should learn how to say no.
Sheryl Crow prioritizes her time with her boys and chooses the organizations where she can devote some of her precious time to.
“But she still has a huge heart. Sheryl teamed up with Nutrition Mission, an organization that feeds millions of Americans in need. It’s that spirit of giving that she’s passing on to her kids especially during the holidays.”
This is a good food for thought for busy moms. It’s okay to say no and to prioritize certain tasks that are worth being part of. The key is to choose a task or maybe an organization that can have a good impact on the kids. This is the way Sheryl Crow is spending her time.
“I try to take my kids down to the food bank during Thanksgiving and Christmas so that they understand the impact of what it means to be part of a community and that you need to take care of each other.”
Surely, there’s a lot to learn from Sheryl Crow, a busy mom herself. It’s really all about prioritizing and choosing what’s best for the kids. Unfortunately, busy moms overlook what is good for the kids. With full time jobs and household chores, busy mom just get caught up in the web of doing things. Saying no certain things and focusing on what’s good for the kids can really make a huge difference in the life of a busy mom.
