I recently had a convo with a fellow mommy friend who really got me thinking about this topic and inspired this post.
You might wonder what a “typical” day in the life of a work-from-home-mom is like. In truth, there is no “typical” day. Every day is a challenge with its own struggles, but the goal is always the same: Get. Shit. Done.
With that being said, I’ll try to describe my standard day:
7:30-8:00WAKE UP! Matt’s getting ready to leave for work. So if I can, I’ll make him some breakfast; but usually, he just grabs some yogurt and heads out the door. Feed the cat. Feed Kevin. Drink two cups of coffee. Feed myself.
Now, I can officially start the day.
Set up Kev with the TV (usually the Sprout channel), while I do the dishes/clean the kitchen (because I usually don’t have energy at night to load the dishwasher). Then I sneak upstairs to *try* to get some work done. Kev quickly realizes I’m not in the living room, so he comes upstairs to keep me from working. We do Play-Doh or watch TV or play hide-and-seek from the monster (?). I clean something else in the midst of “playing” to feel productive.
