Trying to keep sane and organized is my daily goal. . . .
I’m still working as many of you would have guessed. When you own your own business there is no “maternity leave” but thank goodness for my sister, family and employees who help me try to take some time off. The hard part is balancing all the work/designs I need to work on and feeding Gavin. The every 2-3 hour feedings keep me busy enough, but in between the time I’m on my computer, in conference calls or meetings. Days are flying by and sometimes my head is spinning. The hardest part about being a new mom the first time around was that I was afraid to ask for help. I wanted to do it all myself and put the pressure on that I needed to be a perfect mom, wife, friend, blogger and business owner. This time around I am asking for help, getting help and taking a nap when I feel tired. I’ve definitely learned it is not a weakness to ask for help and my happiness help my boys and my husband feel good around me :). Overall I’m doing well, just somewhat forgetful these days and trying to put lists together so I do allocate enough time to what has to be done vs what can be done later.
Now if only I could get some 40 degree weather in Chicago so I can feel like this winter will end soon.
