  1. I feel like you wrote this for me. I have always loved working and thrived in the work place. After having my daughter in October I started working from home and I feel so overwhelmed alll the time. Every free second I am working and every second she is awake I am being mom/wife/house keeper. Now we have baby #2 on the way! Whew. Things are about to get crazier around here! Haha

    • I hope you take some time out to take a break. Especially during your pregnancy and after baby #2 arrives. I thought my work would suffer if I didn’t spend every minute on it. But the truth is, even if I wasn’t doing quite as much work, the quality of my work improved when I started taking more breaks from it. Take a break, mama! Watch a movie, read a book, take a nap! You’ll feel refreshed.

  2. O, I want to stay at home and work from home, but My kids will be in preschool in the mornings so I can work in the mornings in peace and quite and then clean the home and take care of the kids at afternoon and when the kids are in bed about 7:30 it will be my time..

    I’m pregnant with my first child now and I’ve gotten similar advice. That right after having your baby, and for a while afterword, you’ll lose yourself but not to worry – eventually you will find yourself again.

    I really like your blog post. I agree with you that we all need to maintain things in our life that bring us joy. It’s true no matter what our age is or how old our kids are, life is busy and hectic and we need to save space in our lives for nurturing ourselves. And like you, I’ve always loved reading 😊📚

    Love your post! I have been a Work from home Mom for most of my daughter’s life and sometimes it is hard to find the time for myself and disconnect from being a mom and business woman for just 5 minutes

  6. Love this post. One of the reasons why I started blogging was to have a creative outlet as a stay-at-home mom. But my real passion is dance…just waiting for both my boys to be in school so hopefully I can take a class or two. 🙂
