The biggest balance challenge for me was when I would fit the nail salon and Starbucks in between my meetings. He brought a whirlwind of things that was like chaos to my relatively balanced before baby life. The first 6 months I was doing my interior design business and doing the baby thing…at the exact same time.
I mean, some of it was totally awesome good chaos and other parts were the crazy chaos. It was a mix of cramming in work during naptimes and bringing him on design shopping trips for projects, always praying he’d stay chill.
