Today I felt I needed to run away from my home/office. My new baby girl is 4 months and my older son is 4 years old. More than ever I need to maximize my time. Someday I feel I haven’t done much at all. Trying to concentrate working from home, but I hear my baby and I run to make sure everything is all right. Even though the nanny takes care of her. But I guess this is normal.
Working from home is great! But for example today my son doesn’t go to school. He only goes to school Tuesday through Friday.
Mondays are kind of crazy, especially if I am trying to work from home. I better run away from home and get something done.
A friend of mine another entrepreneur like me, told me. Evelyn let’s have coffee and work at the nearest coffee place. I have started this since last Monday. I guaranteed YOU that I have accomplished more than you could imagine.
I had an apple turnover and my hazelnut coffee;)
I also did my list of priority things to do, starting with:
– Answering emails
– Applying for show with deadlines soon to come
– Making phone calls
I think I also needed air and be away from home. Although I am still breastfeeding having two kids is not as easy as you could imagine. My nanny leaves at 4p and I always think I will have time to accomplish more things when she is gone.
But my son Tyler tells me mommy sit with me, mommy I need water, mommy I am hungry, mommy I need to go to the bathroom; he knows how to do it all but he is acting as if he is a baby (you might know why…, right?) perhaps he is going through a special phase because my attention goes more to my little girl.
To be honest sometimes I feel frustrated I don’t have the same time. So after 4p is becoming harder and harder for me to work so I end up working when everybody is in bed.
Now more than ever I have to maximize my time. I have to prioritize more than ever. I know time flies, too. So I also know I need to enjoy my kids and I truly want to do it.
Some friends have three, four kids and they still remain in business, they still engage into new challenges and they are my inspiration to continue strong knowing that YES I CAN DO IT! So do you;)
Hope this helps you in your journey as a mompreneur,
