let's whip that brand into shape
Ever since the pandemic hit, so many more people have been faced with a new reality: working from home with kids. Even pre-pandemic, I have been working from home with my daughter since 2018! I remember when she was first born and I was totally overwhelmed with the new responsibility of keeping a tiny human alive, all while have business deadlines barreling toward me. It was quite the transition, but I have since formulated strategies that allow for success in being a mom and being a business owner.
As our family has grown, I have finally acknowledged the need for help. Working from home with one child is far different than working from home with three, all of which are on different sleeping schedules. With three children at home, little to no work gets done when it is just me and the kids, photography or house-wise. Some days I am lucky if I get a load of laundry done.
Regardless, I still do my best to put into practice as many of these strategies as possible. We still do our best to abide by routines. And in the chance that the boys’ naps overlap, Huxley still has her quiet time reading or coloring while I work on a little something here or there.
And when all else fails…remember that you are simply in a season of juggling. Some of those priorities are glass balls, while others are rubber balls. If you drop the glass ball…it breaks. If you drop the rubber ball…it bounces. For me, my kids and family are the glass balls. Work, while I find a lot of my identity and value in it, is a rubber ball. I take comfort in knowing that the clients I get to work with understand and champion the season I am in, so there is rarely pressure to sacrifice time with my children to fulfill a work deadline.
If you have another work from home strategy that is particularly helpful when in the season of life with small children at home, comment those below and help fellow members of the TPF community!
