|Thanks to my cousin Becki for taking an awesome pic.|
Now that 6 weeks have gone by, it's safe to say that I'm eager to begin working again. Easy to say, tough to do, when an 11lb midget would rather I spend all my waking hours (and sleeping hours) with her. Seriously, I have to plan my bathroom breaks around when my spouse is home.
My new challenge, which I am keenly interested in overcoming, is learning how to manage my time with a house, a baby, and myself to take care of, as well as a business to grow. My first tip is this: Get or make a sling! Here's a picture of me hand writing the first draft of this blog post with my angel on my chest. I actually made soup while wearing her in this thing last night. So convenient.
My second tip is to have a spouse who can take 9 months off work so you can work at home while he cares for the midget.
All right, reel it in. Do not make this blog into a mom blog. I promise I'll still write about business, but you're going to have to put up with the odd "working mom" post. I will leave you with a couple of pictures of my new studio spaces in the basement of my house. They're coming along! The only thing that I desperately want to change is the little blue room. By all rights, it should be green, no?
