Work from home..ummm..not so much

A few months ago I got it in my head that what I love to do and went to school for could easily be done from home. I read the proper books, did online research, and brushed up on my grammar and communication skills. What I thought could be easy was proven difficult by a very active five year old little girl.  Whenever I try to type a blog I get one sentence done and then find myself being called away from the computer to become a child in my daughter's make believe classroom.  Hours later I try to write another sentence. This can go on all day. What is funny is that I figured that once she became five years old it would be easier to do other things in my life...boy, was I wrong. If I can only get a paragraph of a blog out a couple times a week...I don't think working from home in Communications is going to pan out. How can I complain about spending my days as a princess or playing the Angry Birds card game for hours.  I wouldn't trade her wildness for anything. I do truly commend working mom's out there--whether they work outside the home or not. My dream to transition into a working mom will come with time--kindergarten is just around the corner!

  1. Cherish those moments of pretend. I know you do. For a five year old becomes a 15 year old in the blink of an eye. And in another blink they are 25! If we could only slow down time to suit our desires!

    1. I do cherish them. I love being with her everyday. At least I can do my photography from home and call that 'my own little something'.

    1. I'll be sure to follow you back! Thanks! Yes, they are small for a short time. I do feel lucky to be at home with her and blessed to have a husband who works hard. Time flies...5 years has felt like nothing!

  3. I totally understand! I have a 5, 13, and 15 year old and I sell my handmade crafts online. There's never enough time to get my work done, but that's o.k. Well, I'm off to play Monopoly Jr. with my 5 year old. I'm a new follower from MBC.

    1. Thanks for following! I get a little frustrated I don't have a lot of me time..but then I stop and realize this time in her life won't be here for long.
