Hi! I'm looking for some other mother's out there who work secularly from home. I'm interested in hearing how you manage. Do you have someone come to your home and watch your kids, do they go to daycare or do you watch them yourselves? If so, how you do keep up with your work?
I am a 28 year old mother of 2 (ages 2 and 4) who is currently employed by a Gyn/Oncology practice. I work full-time (32 hours) and also watch my kids full-time. Most days I feel like I am barely keeping my head above water. Weekends are usually spent playing catch up for all the secular work I didn't get done during the week.
So, as you can imagine, there is seldom energy for exercise and diet but I have committed myself to getting off these 30 pounds that have plagued me since my first pregnancy. I did actually get down to 150 when I got pregnant with my daughter (I was 140 when I got pregnant with my son) but that is the closest I have been.
I would love to share the joys and miseries of working at home. So many people think it must be so easy when they hear about my job...if they only knew.
Anyway, looking forward to hearing from some you on this!
