When I tell people that I work from home the standard response I get is “Oh that must be so nice!”. I have to smile and say that it’s lovely but the reality of my days is far different from what people must think.
I run two small businesses from home with two kids. I was about 178 months pregnant with my second when I started my entrepreneurial adventure so I’ve always been in this balancing act of family and work.
My expectation was that the children would play happily around me while I got loads of work done, kept up with housework, never missed a precious moment of their lives and never felt an ounce of mom guilt.
I’ll give you a moment to stop laughing before you carry on….
