i just started working from home (i have stayed home since my son was born but i didn't work) and I'm realizing how much i just sat around watching tv and playing and holding baby, how do you balance it all?

When I first started staying home with my son, all I did was sit around and watch my TV shows because I never had time anywhere else to do it. Once I got in the swing of things, I made sure to set aside "me" time. Sometimes I wake up before my son, and although it can be early, I try to get some of the house chores done before he wakes up. We have nap time at a specific time, so if I'm too tired I will rest while he does too. I don't think staying at home means having to always bust your butt. Taking care of kids is hard. I just try not to make it an every day habit.

I think the best way to balance is to create a structured schedule, and stick to it, but you have to make sure you're creating a schedule that really works for you. Figure out your most productive times of the day, and schedule the hardest work during those times.
