This is mine, our couch in our living room. I sit there with my mac on my lap and typing away like a mad woman while T watches her DVDS. Yes, I know, she watches way too much television. But when I’m busy with a deadline, there’s really nothing much I can do about it.
Most mornings, I work in our kitchen too. Sometimes T plays with her play-dough, paints or draws beside me and when the weather is good enough, I also work in the garden while she plays in her sandpit, tent, or bouncy thing. That’s my life as a mom. It’s better this way actually – I’m able to take my work with me wherever I am in the house, than just sitting on a desk. Sometimes, I do wonder if I’ll be more productive and creative if I stay put on a desk. But that’s just not possible for me right now, not with a two-year-old, almost three-year-old demanding little girl like mine. I’ll consider a desk, once she begins school.
For now I can dream of having a lovely home-office like the following:
