Today was a tough day.
Today, our two little ones were extremely clingy. Leave their side one moment and they cry like it’s the end of the world.
Today, we ran out of rice. And drinking water. How could we miss that on our grocery list?! Worse, the supplier did not deliver our water right away. We had to wait hours. Hours!
Today, two of my clients dumped a load of work on me. All were due… well… today.
Today, of all days, Mother Nature paid me a visit. The first after more than fifteen months of absence.
I was at the verge of madness today. The kids were whining and crying all day. I was hungry and thirsty like hell. And I was very, very uncomfortable! God. I wanted to crawl into a hole. I wanted some peace and quiet, even for just a few minutes.
But, of course, I can’t just mute my kids’ cries and shouts for attention. So, I had to cope.
Three Things I Learned Today
- Working from home is hard. You have to juggle work and the kids. Take it from me: make the kids your priority. Otherwise, they’ll keep bugging you until you run out of patience. You don’t want that to happen because things will surely get ugly! So make everyone happy and put your kids first. Once they get the attention they want, they’ll be little angels who will let Mommy work in peace.
- If you do run out of patience, go outside and take a deep breath. Give yourself a moment to cool down and think things through.
- Check and double check your grocery list.
