What I’ve Been Up To

There’s pros and cons to working from home.

Pro: I get to spend the entire day with Lukas!

Con: I get to spend the entire day with Lukas…

Our energetic little man wakes up on average at 7am and hits the floor running, or his version of running which is crawling really really fast. He has a bottle and then his breakfast. He’s awake only about 1.5 hours before he’s ready for his first nap. As soon as I put him down I have my coffee ready, do a quick tidy of the house and I race to get myself ready for the day. I have 15 minutes to wash my face, brush my teeth, do my hair and makeup (if im going to wear any) before I have to get to work. Then I sit down at my desk to start emails. There’s two different kinds of emails right now; sponsors and presenters. I usually get to reply to the emails in my inbox and send out about 3 more before Lukie wakes up.

Saturday mornings are a little more laid back when Daddy takes over.

The first thing I do with Lukas when he wakes up from morning nap is get him dressed. For the next 4-5 hours we’ll eat, we’ll play, we’ll learn, we’ll clean up about 5 different times, we’ll go out and run errands, attend appointments, meet up with friends or visit a playground. Lukas absolutely needs about 15 mins of car naptime to make it through until his afternoon nap so I’ll usually sit in a parking lot or our driveway and quickly check emails or do some talent scouting for presenters. When we get home its time for lunch and then it’s about 30 mins – an hour until his last nap of the day.

Last nap is at 2pm which means if I hurry I’m still be able to call some of our awesome product sponsors back east. With the time difference I’m usually catching them right at the end of their work day, which personally I think is better than as soon as they sit down at their desk on a Monday morning. This is also the time that our dog Brie decides it’s a good idea to squeak all her toys and sales people show up at our door sending her into a barking frenzy. Luckily all of the product sponsors that I’ve connected with so far have been absolutely wonderful people and totally understand the chaos in the background. As soon as Lukas wakes up from his nap its game over and I have to put everything away until bedtime.

I’ve never really understood the whole concept of why women in business are so extremely supportive of other women in business, but now I get it! I use to wonder what the difference was between dealing with a man in business or dealing with a women, but now I get it! I used to not understand why women need to empower other women not only in everyday life but especially in business, but now I get it!!! There’s nothing like running a mom & baby group to help me figure this one out. I’ll be the first to admit that when I walk into a meeting with my little guy and his binky on my hip it might make it a bit difficult for a man to take me seriously. And sure, when my son poops during that meeting to the point that we need to open the office door to let the stink escape, that might not make me look as “professional” as the people they’re use to dealing with but my business IS all about babies and being a mom, so I’m going to stay strong and own that stink damnit! I guess to be fair they are maybe treating me like a mom, a wife and a nurturer and not the bad ass boss babe (I hate that term) I’m trying to come off as. I am by no means a man hater. I am married to a wonderful man AND I’m raising a little man now too! Not all business encounters with men have been horrible. One of the four was actually extremely helpful with setting up The Baby Bunch insurance and went above and beyond to help me find the information I needed. So shout out to Nate at HUB International Edmonton for treating me like a business human.

Once Lukas is asleep for the night around 7pm my husband and I clean up (again) and we both sit down with every lap top, iPad and iPhone we own to work on The Baby Bunch website, calendar, scheduling, social media accounts, and emails. We are hard at work until bedtime…which is 9:30pm most nights. Before bed I lay clothes out for Lukas and I for the next day This is something new I’ve been doing since seeing it on a mom vlog and it has been a HUGE time and sanity saver for me in the mornings. If your not already watching mom vlogs I highly recommend it. You don’t need to watch it intensely but just in the background while you fold all those tiny baby clothes. My favorite vlog right now is Tara Henderson. A good mom friend of mine recommended it and I am so hooked. Its playing in the background as I type this.

I just finished my last official week of maternity leave before I return to my part time job at the hospital and my husband takes over for the last month of leave. Luckily I really love my job at the hospital and my co-workers feel like family so going back should be nice. I actually struggled with leaving THEM when I went on maternity leave! I’ve picked up a lot of shifts in April because once May hits and The Baby Bunch begins I’ll just be sticking to my 8 days a month at the hospital so that I can keep up with all The Baby Bunch fun to come! Stay tuned.
