Our minions have recently turned two. It amazing how time has flown by & not long ago my hubby and I had a chat about how much our life has changed! Mainly the transition to a family of 4 life! We’ve been through 3 Nannies and 2 jobs each just to create some sense of balance for us and provide the life we believe our minions need.
Currently, I am self-employed and working mainly from home with some office hours during the week and my hubby works third shift with weekends off. It took some getting used to but we really both wanted to be there to see our kids hit the milestones.
During the time we both worked full time, the minions were with a nannies and it was extremely difficult for me as a new mom. The nannies did not work out & ultimately we decided to make some changes.
Never would I have thought that this is how things would be but in speaking to many other moms and families, flexibility is a major factor in family life!
How was your transition to having kids & what do you do to maintain the balance?
