as a work-at-home mom I constantly feel like I have a foot straddling two worlds, feeling like I’m not doing enough with my creative pursuits yet also feeling like I’m not being present & engaged enough with my baby. last night, after Buddy was already asleep, I was browsing old photos & videos of him & I felt an overwhelming awareness of how fast things are moving. 🖤 this week my goal is to find peace where I am at with my work. peace in knowing that growth can come later but Buddy is only little once & this time is fleeting. peace in my delayed email responses (sorry!!) & creative aspirations that will stay on hold or potentially never be realized. being a mother & loving my baby has become the greatest role I have ever played. getting to do creative projects & bring in a small income for my family, with my baby wrapped up on my chest or playing next to me, is just the cherry on top. sending peace to other parents who spend their days with their babies & work in the evenings or fold laundry during naps or who have put their previous aspirations on hold for the great joy of parenthood. #bestjobofall | And for those who have asked me about the play yard we use, it’s the @regalobaby My Play and it’s finally back in stock!!!
