Life of a Creative Mother
The life of a creative mother is often challenging to say the least. I am a mother to my almost 4 yr old daughter, Ava, a wife to my husband, a mom to my 2 furry sons (cocker spaniels), a maid, and a small business owner. I often wear all of these hats, and mostly all at once somehow. I forgot to include chef too. It's not always a walk in the park when I am out and about with my daughter running errands or just having plain old fun when I have a business to run and have emails to respond to, orders to make, shop for supplies etc. It is constantly on my mind at all times. Let's face it, I have no real "free time". In my "free" time, I spend it tweaking my website and brushing up on some SEO tips and seeking out other information to better my business. I absolutely love what I do, don't get me wrong, I just wish there was an easier way to juggle all these. Perhaps more time in a day could fix this, but that is simply unrealistic, unless its a leap year- one extra day to indulge into anything possible! (While I'm writing this, Ava is begging for an ice pop for breakfast! Really, child? really? Let's have some cereal first please!) I hope to seek out someway to corral all of my thoughts and errands in a more organized way. One think I have done is that I do not do any business stuff on Friday or Saturday. This seems to give my poor hands a break from creating any orders. At this very moment while writing this blog, the chef has been called in to make pancakes this morning, the maid needs to clean the kitchen, the mom to the furry ones needs their breakfast served, and the emails need to be responded to and I wouldn't change any of this for the world! Today will be a GREAT day!
