Toddler Life Working at Home

The Work-at-Home Toddler Tango: One Year In

Hey amazing mamas and fellow work-at-home warriors! It’s Krystan, checking in after a year of mastering the delicate art of typing with one hand while chasing a 15-month-old tornado with the other. Buckle up because, oh boy, what a ride it’s been!

So, here’s the lowdown: working at home with a toddler is a whole different ball game compared to the days of baby burps and naptime cuddles. But fear not, my friends, because I’ve cracked the code and found some nifty tricks to make it work. Here are my top five survival hacks:

1. Playpens: Your Toddler’s Fortress of Fun

Let’s talk about the unsung heroes of my work-at-home life – playpens. I’ve strategically scattered these magical boundaries in multiple rooms, creating safe zones where my little one can unleash their energy without me having a minor heart attack every five seconds. Implement them early, use them often, and thank me later.

2. Nap and Lunch Time Are Sacred

Repeat after me: clients can wait. Seriously, it’s a mantra worth adopting. Schedule your meetings and important tasks around nap and lunchtime. These are your golden hours. If someone can’t understand the sacredness of nap time, are they even living in the real world?

3. Morning Routines: Because Coffee Alone Can’t Fix Everything

Implement a morning routine that’s a blend of ninja-level self-prep and quality time with your tiny sidekick. A well-prepared mama is a mighty one. Get yourself ready, grab that coffee (mandatory, of course), and steal some precious moments with your toddler before the work hustle begins.

4. Toddler-Approved Toys: The Real MVPs

Invest in toys that your little one can conquer on their own. It’s like creating your mini CEO’s corner office. Easy-to-play-with toys mean less intervention from the chief entertainment officer (you) during crunch time. Win-win!

5. Embrace the Imperfections: Flexibility is Your Superpower

Repeat after me again: not every day will be perfect. Flexibility is your secret weapon. Life with a toddler is unpredictable, and that’s the beauty of it. Embrace the chaos, don’t sweat the small stuff, and remember, you’re doing an incredible job.

Bonus tip: A little Ms. Rachel and tablet time won’t hurt anyone. Sometimes, survival mode calls for a strategic retreat, and there’s no shame in that game.

So, to all you work-at-home mamas with energetic toddlers, cheers to the messy desks, impromptu dance parties, and the art of getting things done with a side of toddler giggles. You’ve got this, and remember, the real MVP is you!

Sending caffeinated love and toddler high-fives,
