God bless everyone, and hope everyone is doing really well!
I just wondered if anyone, as myself, is working from home with a young toddler. Mine is 18 months old and no help. No nanny, no sitter (no money) and no older sibling (moved away) and no husband (his work is insane and he’s required to be in all day meetings for most of the week but he helps a lot at night…he works all day weekends at a second job, he can’t help much during the day through no fault of his own).
If anyone is in a similar situation, how do manage your “office work” and preparing meals for toddlers and dinner prep. (my husband usually manages laundry and the floors will get mopped one day). I usually tackle toddler meals, dinner prep and my office job during his now one nap. Everything else has to be at night or chunks of time where I ignore the baby in his safe play place for at minimum an hour during the day. (I resent ignoring him because my boss sent me a lot of work again and have to purposely think of my gratitude of having work, there are homeless families struggling)
Advice and encouragement is much appreciated and needed, I’m struggling to manage my emotions. Last week my boss sent me a project (no deadline) that I spent all this weekend writing for and when I received her email on Friday afternoon (after office hours) with a vague notion of what i should do for this big thing I literally went crazy and surprised myself, I didn’t even know what came over me but I cursed and my husband saw how stressed I became. I notice that everytime my boss sends me work I get angry because of the stresses of juggling work while caring for a toddler.
Thanks for listening. God bless you all.
