Fatherhood & Family

Manic Mornings

I’ve been working at home and helping take care of the kids for 3 years now.  I love it.  That being said, there is many a morning where it’s just a little crazy, a little manic if you will.  There’s a number of reasons why mornings can be crazy.  Let’s have a look-see:

  1. I feel bad waking up the kids too early.  They get up fairly early at this point, but  I always get the feeling that another 15 minutes would really be fantastic.
  2. Finding a balance can be tough. I want them to have fun and be kids.  Enjoy life.  That’s what it’s about at 6 and 4 years old, no?  But finding when to say “enough is enough” is always a tough one.  I don’t want to be a drill sargeant, but I do want to have well-behaved, disciplined children.
  3. Being a little bit OCD in the way I would like things done.  They have to do certain things in certain ways.  That’s that.
It’s been getting much better and less hectic and they get older and as I get more of the hang of it all.  It’s a challenge, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.  Though some mornings, that may be up for debate.

Bill is a guy that's been working at home since 2008. What does that mean? It means he runs a business, has a blog, takes care of the kids and house, and doesn't really have much more time left in the day. Piece of cake, but wouldn't have it any other way.
