Chronicles of a #workfromhomemom Part 1

Since we entered this weird period of time about a month ago (thanks Coronavirus!), I’ve realized exactly WHY I send my kids to school and why homeschooling is not my first choice. Don’t get me wrong, I actually love my kids and there are some serious pros to having them home right now (i.e. PJs alllll day.) But, when it comes to actually getting work done…that’s the hard part.

Last week, I joined my favorites over at Inspired Vibe on their new weekly zoom episodes aimed at Inspiring Conversations. AND I FREAKING LOVED IT! Here’s a look at what went down…

What does a typical #workfromhome day look like for you? Not gonna lie, trying to work from home while attempting homeschooling is NOT something I ever imagined for my day to day. I recorded my first video session with Inspired Vibe earlier this week and while onscreen went great, the BTS….not so much. 🤣 #workfromhomelife ⁣⁣ Read on ⬇️⁣ ⁣⁣⁣

🐕The second the video begins, my puppy starts barking at absoluely nothing. I quickly mute myself, pick him up & put him on my lap to keep him quiet. He can’t quite get comfortable, so he continues to shift around for next 10 minutes casually popping his head onto the screen a few times.⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣

🧒👦The kids have been given freedom to use iPads, get a snack, watch a show – basically anything to keep them quiet fro 30 minutes. And they are! I don’t hear one peep from them. HOWEVER, I walk downstairs after the video is done to basically a kitchen armageddon. They have decided to play their version of Iron Chef which includes lots of ketchup & sticky maple syrup…which is now everywhere. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ I’ve worked from home for the last few years, but this is what trying to work from home looks like to me now.

🤣 Add in the “homeschooling”, and trying to manage the house full of people all day and we’re basically a disaster. ⁣🙃

Stay tuned for Part 2!
