I’ve currently only opened my Etsy shop, so I can start to get into the swing of things. I’m trying to get used to taking and making orders whilst looking after a 3 month old.
Before Christmas, the only things that really stopped me getting on with orders or coming up with new designs was getting waylaid by social media, or a new episode of the Walking Dead. These days it seems like one small creature can just use up all my time like a cute little time sponge.
I’m sure anyone else with a baby will understand what I mean when I say that I seem to do everything in 10-20 minute blocks. I’ll pop her on her playmat and hopefully have 20 minutes, so I quickly make some zombie eyeballs. Oooh, I think, she’s tired so I pop her in bed and think I’ll make that owl baby hat, only to find she’s awake after 10 minutes. Then I think I’ll feed her and get cracking on the TARDIS coffee cosy, only to find she’ll want to take an hour to eat…
That’s also with trying to fit things around all those new mummy things like Baby Massage, Bumps and Babies, Baby Cinema, Baby Yoga, etc, etc. Oh and let’s not forget constantly filling and emptying the washing machine… oooh that’s reminded me – the washer finished half an hour ago so I’d better get those nappies on the line!
