From day 1, I knew I wasn’t stay at home mom material. Quite frankly, staying home with my kids full time is much harder then my day job!
I have had the luxury of working from my home for a Big Company for the past 8+ years. Pre-kids I had a nice little office set up in one of our spare bedrooms- big L-shaped desk, bookshelves, awards. Now each of those spare bedrooms is filled with a kid so I work out of a small hutch in our family room. It’s not glamorous, but it allows me to get my job done each day.
When I was pregnant with Scorch, we researched a variety of day care options. After looking at a few places, we realized how silly it was to send Scorch out of the house while I was here so we hired Mary, our nanny. Since then, I’ve had the pleasure (most of the time) of being able to work with my kids one floor up from me. I can love on them any time I want. I give them kisses when they leave the house and I greet them at the door when they get home. In the summer I can take my lunch outside with them or take a break between meetings to stick my feet in the kiddie pool while they play. In short, it’s the perfect set up!
Today I took the day off from work and was out of the house all day long. On my drive home, I realized just how much I missed those little buggers. Then I realized how much more I was going to miss them next year when they are both in school full time.
Anyone know of a way to freeze time? Because today, I’m all for that!
