How do you organize your time so you can get your work done and take care of your children? How many hours a day do you work? Do you work with kids underfoot?
When I started my business, my children were in pre-school, Montessori to be exact. I had so many hours during the day to work uninterrupted, but as a writer, there were many times when I would need to finish a thought/chapter and they were asking questions or wanting my attention. I worked many nights too, after they went to sleep. Fortunately, I love what I do. I'm deliberate during the time my kids are at school, always leaving a little wiggle room. Tell me about you!
I get up at 6 a.m and take care of a few work details from 6 to 7 (email and blog posts). Then I try to squeeze a little work somewhere in the morning, but I have a 3 year old at home. I usually work solid during her naptime from 1 to 3. Then I dabble a little here and a little there in the afternoon. During the weekdays, I work from 8 to 10 or so. That is my schedule in a nutshell. I also do as much as I can during the weekend as well.
