I’m finding it hard lately to divide my time up.
Baby Boy is always my first priority, and every moment he’s awake, we’re busy doing things together — or he’s “helping” me do chores, get dressed, etc.
When he goes to sleep — thank GOD he is still napping twice a day, at almost 15 months old! — my priority shifts to work. I’ve been doing a lot of different projects lately (for a lot of different clients), and I’ve been really enjoying it. So I work-work-work every minute until Baby Boy wakes up. This often repeats after he’s in bed.
So … where is the time for other projects?
Where is the time to do all of the little things that I CAN’T do when Baby Boy is awake?
The things that I DON’T do while he’s sleeping, because I’m working?
I have said before that I need to start allocating some of my “free chunks” of time to this stuff. But then I don’t. I choose to work instead — which is very good, believe me. Working = good. But not getting ANYTHING done but basic chores/cooking, caring for Baby Boy, and working? I feel like I’m dropping the ball on everything else, and missing fun things.
Am I the only one with this problem?
