Midsummer woes of a WAHM

Filed under: Work Life

Summertime can be a drain on moms everywhere. For those of us who work from home, the sudden influx of kids in our work spaces often means a decrease in productivity. Summer for kids means lots of activities and a director to coordinate those outings. More often than not, it is the mother who ends up being the activity director. I know I find that my nerves are frazzled by mid-July. With the trips to the swimming pool, the increased taxiing and almost constant companionship of my kids, I find myself daydreaming of autumn days when school will be in full swing and I will have a few moments to quietly work.

Being a WAHM is a gift that I cherish and don't take lightly. When I worked in an office I dreamed of being able to work around my kids' schedules. Now I have that dream and I wouldn't trade it for anything, except maybe a weekend at a spa for tired moms.

Are you experiencing summer burnout? If so, how are you coping? I am open to any suggestions.
