Summer break has officially started. This was my first week having all 3 kids home with me and trying to work fulltime from home. It has been a challenge to say the least. In other words – it has not been easy at all. 🙂 My 2 oldest were in preschool full time Monday through Friday during the school year, so all I had was the baby to deal with. I was definitely spoiled.
Now I am having to spend more time with the kids than working, which I wouldn’t mind if I didn’t have the pressure of getting my work done within a certain time. I am not complaining, because I really do love my job. I love my clients. They would all completely understand if I told them that I was going to be late with something. But I am the type of person that likes to get everything done within a certain time frame. But now I have TWO fulltime jobs. So, once again I take up the “Super Mommy” role.
I found this picture and imagined my own children duct taped to the wall. I don’t think that they would be too happy, but maybe if I wore ear plugs, I could actually get something done without an interruption every 10 minutes. LOL
I say this will total and complete love. I ADORE my children and I would drop everything in a heartbeat if my children needed me. But it is nice to be able to get out my frustration with a little bit of humor. 🙂
How about you? Are you ready for summer? Are you a WAHM like me and have to juggle kids and work? Tell me about it – what are your strategies?
