It’s been exactly 1 year since I left corporate America and our child’s beloved sitter. It was a hard decision, because well let’s face it. A nice corporate job has it’s perks and by perks I mean CA-CHING$$ – money – mula – deniro. After seeing a few prayers answered, I knew jumping ship was what God had planned for me.
Jumping ship didn’t mean I couldn’t bring in an income. Jumping ship meant I HAD to find a way to continue to bring in an income. Thankfully with not having to pay out the wazoo in childcare, like we previously were doing I was able to find enough work to keep a few of the extras that our life had become accustomed to.
All that is fine and dandy, except – wait. No childcare meant I had a baby and a toddler to watch during the majority of the day, and then our 2 older kids in the afternoon. My work-at-home life had all of a sudden smacked me with reality – I was going to have to learn how to juggle being a full-time mom, work-at-home mom and a wife.
A year later, now with 2 toddlers – we are making PROGRESS. I would never ever jinx myself by saying I’ve figured out anything in life. School of hard knocks has taught me never to say or blog anything as such. So, here are a few tips I’ve learned – hopefully they will help you if you are a work-at-home mom type or considering the such.
