My daughters (9 & 7) are home for the summer. While they were in school, I was at home with my 20m old son. I had a routine everyday:
- drop girls off to school
- take morning walk w/son.
- come home get breakfast.
- check emails.
- set Barney up for son, hopefully he took his nap thereafter :)
- do my job search
- get lunch/dinner together
- pick up girls from school
- homework, dinner, bed
In between there were moments where I may run errands, get interrupted by my son (of course), read blogs (need to cutback on that :), etc. Let's not forget that I have to research for my dream business, make products every once in while. While still looking for a job outside the home.
But now that I have to look after all 3 kids, that routine is no longer doable. Multitasking is one thing, but making valuable use of your time is something entirely different. Keeping them entertained while I get things done is always my main concern.
So this post is for all my Mommies out there who have that side business while taking care of business at home. I am with you in the struggle and while it may seem hard, I would not change a thing.
So tell me what great suggestions would you give someone who is trying to make better use of their time? You could be married w/children, single w/kids or pets :) or otherwise. All comments are welcomed.
