Five signs you are a working mum, by Kirsty McCabe

Are you a working mum? Would you know how to spot your own kind? Our weekly columnist, TV weather presenter and meteorologist Kirsty McCabe, gives us the signs to look for...

Working mum A successful mum and a successful career woman
  1. Before you even get to work you've had a busy morning getting everybody up and dressed and out of the house. You've changed nappies, made breakfast, watched Paw Patrol, picked breakfast up off the floor, loaded the dishwasher, brushed teeth (yours and theirs) and cajoled little ones into prams or car seats. If you're really lucky you might even have had time to brush your own hair and make yourself presentable.

  2. You are super productive while at work. This is because most women are naturally good at multi-tasking. Most working mums take this to the next level as they don't have time to waste during the day because they need to leave on time. Partly because they have children to collect from nursery or school, but also because they want to spend time with their family.

  3. Working mums are whirlwinds in the evenings. Sometimes I'll have emptied the dishwasher, put on the washing machine, tidied toys away, put dinner on and and then finally have time to take off my outdoor coat. To be honest, being at work can feel like a rest sometimes.

  4. You don't feel jealous when younger (child-free) colleagues at work discuss their epic weekend plans, you just feel tired at the thought. Mainly because you know you wouldn't get a lie in to recover the next morning and it's no fun changing nappies with a hangover.

  5. In fact, when it comes to your own weekend plans you are simply thinking about that bottle of wine in the fridge and debating between an Marks & Spencer meal deal or a cheeky takeaway while watching high-brow television programmes such as Take Me Out. Or maybe that's just me!
