Instagram photo by tarensbardellaChuck is still feeling under the weather. Nothin a few board games, snuggles and the Wizard of Oz can't fix β€οΈπβ¨ Gratitude is overflowing right now. A short time ago, a sick kiddo meant the entire day got disrupted!
If my kids were sick, I would have to get in touch with all the parents who would be shortly dropping their babes off with me. I would feel awful calling them at 6 am telling them my kids were sick. I hated that I had to leave them hanging! And my sick kids meant I wouldn't get paid for the day.
Any working parent knows the deets. It's so hard when the kids don't feel good to try and figure it all out! Who's gonna stay home? Who can come help? What are we gonna do? The scramble!
Today when Chuck got warm and coughed her brains out, I didn't need to scramble. All I needed to do was scoop her up and calm her down and get her cozy on the couch. And right now I am sitting next to her while she rests and I'm working. I don't need to use a sick day or shut down the biz for the day. I get to be MOM and BIZ OWNER--and I'm sharing this because if I can do this, then so can YOU!
You can live a life without the scramble.
You can be a present working momma.
You can create the schedule that works for you.
You can live life on your terms.
It takes patience. Trust. Faith. Heart. And hustle. But I'm sitting here right now telling you it's REAL and it's POSSIBLE and it's right here for YOU!
Sooooo let's chat β€οΈ
