When Mama Works

Working from home has become more challenging with each passing month! The first couple of months, I would work with Paxton in the Moby Wrap or he would contentedly lie on his play mat.

As he’s gained mobility working has been harder! The past couple of months I’ve had to work in spurts, 15 minutes here and there, maybe 30 minutes when he’s sleeping, wake up early or stay up late!

Next week is deadline week so I’m working again. Since he doesn’t like to be left alone, the high chair is my best friend! I’ll give him a handful of Cheerios and he’ll munch on them which usually takes 30 minutes! Once he finishes his Cheerios, I’ll hand him his sippy cup of water and he drinks and plays with that for awhile. Then I start handing him toys! I’ve been able to work in 2 hour increments this way! {He starts to get a little cranky and quite frankly I need a break too! I change his diaper, nurse him if it’s time and we play!}
