I am at home with my Daughter ( 2 yrs 4 months) and am in charge of the house and care of our daughter: cooking, cleaning...running the place. I am lucky to have a husband who helps out when he can and actually DOES do the chores I ask him to. But the daily grind really gets me down.
I am a designer, and have worked in the fashion industry for my career, and REALLY want and need to get a few days of work in a week. We do not want to put her in daycare more than a few days a week, but work in my field really is ONLY FT. I am a super creative person, always making something, I am am illustrator and digital graphic designer, I have been sewing most of my life...! I am feeling rather lost in my direction and not liking my daily duties...not EVERY day anyway!
I love being a mother, have a good kid who is sweet and listens and who I have a lot of fun with. But a break is best for all of us. It's about sanity, and mental wellness I think.
Do any of you run a home based business with little ones at home? How do you manage your time?...love some words of wisdom here!
