5. Don’t Work All Day

When you have little ones, you can’t just sit there in front of the computer typing away and not paying attention to them. One of the main reasons I work from home is to enjoy being with my child. So, every day, I make sure that I have something fun planned for us to do. At around 10:30, the computer gets turned off and we do our fun thing together. We have a picnic at the park, have a play date with friends, go to the library or just build a fort and read some books. It’s me-and-my-son time from the moment that computer goes off until nap time. We get to enjoy quality time together and it really makes both of us happy, and he is better able to cope when I have to work while he’s awake because he knows that he has dedicated mommy time each and every day.
