A Work at Home Mum!!
I’m a Mum of three kids working from home. I love it!! BUT….Its school holidays and I have to admit that I get very little ‘work’ done during this time. I do try. I do. But there are interruptions every few minutes. Just as I’m really focused preparing for our next webinar or writing a new blog post, someone needs food, someone else wants to be dropped at a friends, theres a fight between two of them that I need to sort out, theres craft to be set up, craft to be cleaned up, a spilt drink, a dvd to be picked up, the surfs good and the boys need to go, very quickly the surfs bad and they need to come home…………are you getting the picture?? Do you relate to any of this? I love the fact that I can work from home and when schools on I sit down at my desk at 8.35am and away I go. Holiday time is a completely different story. The thing is though, I love it!! I love the kids being home. I love being here for them. I really just need to be realistic and check a few emails, then switch off the computer and head out for the day with them. Then work when they’re all in bed and I can really focus and plough through it all. THAT is the beauty of working from home. I’m here, I’m flexible and I’m happy. The work does get done, just a little later than I may have first expected. Its precious days for me as my oldest turns 13 this week. In a few years he wont be around so much so I’m seizing the day. I love these years with them. We do bike rides, surf, coffee, sit in the sun at the skate park and talk. I wouldnt miss it for anything.
I would love to know from the rest of you how you manage it all? Do you keep trying to work around the kids or sign off and come back at night when you can really get into it.
I love involving the kids in what I do too. Last week I did my webinar and they all witnessed how it works and what I’m actually doing. My desire is that they will learn that they too can achieve fabulous success in their lives and I will be right behind them all the way. They have a great Mum to learn from but I’ve been blessed with three wonderful kids to be an example to. How fantastic is that!!
