The Busy, Working Mom’s Guide to Trying to Keep the House Clean

The Busy, Working Mom’s Guide to Trying to Keep the House Clean

  Is it possible to balance work, kids and keeping a clean house? It’s possible. What about for busy, working moms? Yep. For a few seconds, you have a sparkly, squeaky-clean kitchen, until the munchkins come barreling in the door with muddy feet and squeaky screams. For a few seconds, you stand back and admire the toy-free floor, walk away to do something else and end up stepping on Legos with no munchkin in sight. How do they do that? You wonder if the “eyes in the back of your head” superpower is glitching. Try to talk to your child […]

And the part of me that remembers what it was like to not smell […]

How to stay Productive when Working From Home

How to stay Productive when Working From Home

Working from home is a one-day goal of mine. I know I’m not alone in that. Working from home gives us the opportunity to find that delicate work-life balance. If you’re like me, we’re searching to learn how to be more focused on our work so we can spend more time with our family. I work full-time in the corporate world. One day I wish to transition into a more part-time schedule, perhaps with some of that time working from home. I’m allowed a few work from home days, usually with special permission if someone is sick (myself or the toddler) […]

How to Handle Child Care When You Work from Home

  Child Care When You Work from Home I am a working Mom of two kids, ages 13 and 3. I have my own consulting business and work remotely, mostly from home. I live a very blended life with almost no boundaries. I work and play every day. I typically work half my work day during the day and the other half at night.   Since I do half my work at night when the kids are asleep, I don’t need full-time care.  I use a combination of college nannies, a childproof playroom and a Pack n’ Play stocked with […]

Why I’m Happy we switched my Toddler to Daycare

Why I’m Happy we switched my Toddler to Daycare

I’m guest posting today on Baby Castan On Board about why I’m happy we switched my toddler to daycare. A brief excerpt is below, and you can read the full post there!   Before I had my baby, we decided to hire a live-in nanny to help care for him while we were at work.
