More Annoyed than Amused

Work At Home

Posted by parsingtime on September 8, 2010

When we came home from the hospital I had to work. Work for the self-employed does not stop nor is there maternity leave. Husband and I figured that I had reduced my work load enough that when I did have to work, I would be able to do so when N was napping or in the evenings when Husband was home.

We are in month three of my busy week at work and I didn’t account for N’s lack of napping (unless she is in her bouncy seat or car — though she sleeps soundly in her crib at night so I’m not sure what gives) and Husband’s insane work schedule right now.

In the few days after N was born all I had to do was work and feed N. My mom and Husband took care of the rest. Last month, my mom came in and watched her while I worked. This month, Husband is out of town, my mom is in Portugal and I’m at a loss. What is going to happen is I’ll have to work late into the night while N is sleeping, which means I lose sleep. Which means when N wakes up at 2am and 5am (she goes to bed around 8ish and sleeps until 1-2ish which is considered sleeping through the night. Last time I checked 6 hours of sleep is not sleeping through the night) I’m tired and send Random texts telling her just how tired I am.

It’s certainly a full-time job (if not more) to be a stay at home mom but balancing the work at home aspect is certainly not something I’ve mastered yet.

    we’d LOVE to have her for a day if you want a day to get some work done. We could use a little more girlyness around here.
