Let me just start this post by saying that working at home with my kids around is no doubt the hardest thing I have ever done. It is taxing in a way that I never imagined. The constant pulling of my attention from a place of creativity and productivity to suddenly switching gears to manage little people’s emotions is the most intense rollercoaster ride I have ever been on and it WIPES ME OUT.
if from the outside this ever appears to look “easy” in any way to you I want to clarify right here once and for all that it is NEVER easy. Beautiful? Absolutely. Fun? No doubt. A disaster at times? FOR SURE. Super rewarding? 100%. But easy? No. Not ever. Not even one day has it ever been “easy”.
The number one question i get from fellow mamas when they learn what i do and that i do it with three littles at home is, “okay but how?” 😂 so today I’m highlighting 3 principals I use when structuring my workday around 3 little people’s schedules and needs.
