Working Mom Wednesday

Linking to Work, Wife,Mom...Life! for Working Mommy Wednesday. For this week I'm creating my own prompt and it's all about my life now that I'm working from home until this baby makes his grand debut!!!

Recently I wrote about the guilt of shutting my door on Charlotte as I go to work in my bedroom - I'm over that! My schedule is now organized by exercise, food, shower, work. I get up at 6:30 and walk for one mile, wake Charlotte up by 7 to say good morning, pass her off to dad, do yoga for 30 minutes then have breakfast while watching Team Umizoomi with Charlotte. Shower, start working.

I love not having to put on make up and find something appropriate to wear for going into the office!

My bedroom has two big windows so the lighting is cheerful and bright.

The bathroom is close by.

I can eat at my desk! My boss has a weird phobia about people eating at their desk in the office so I really love being able to eat all day at my desk - hey I'm 9 months pregnant!!!

I still haven't found my Bose headphones to block out screaming tantrums but I'm learning to work through it.

When I go out for snacks I'm usually required to stop and join a coloring project - that's fun!!!

I miss my co-workers and the freedom I feel when I'm away for the day.

Today one of my work projects is to visit the Disney Store, buy a collection of Princess dolls, drop them off to the office and have them shipped to Vietnam to be copied into small miniature versions. Yes the client encourages us to just buy what we need for new development projects! I walk out of that store with armfuls of plush and being 9mo pregnant they must think I'm a Disney fanatic!!! Most people think "Disney" produces it's own products when in fact it's companies like I work for who are vendors for Disney and we bid against each other and work hard to make the characters look the best for the best price.

I also love not having to dress in anything special for my "office". Most mornings find me working away while still in my pjs or gym clothes. Wouldn't trade it for anything!

Eating at your desk! I eat there everyday! Wow... Your boss must think the desk has cooties or something. ;)

i love how you created your own! As always, you can always write about anything work related for WMW!! and i love how you talked more about your job... that is so interesting!! i hope charlotte doesn't get mad that she can't have all those disney things! ;)

Oh no, she comes to my work office regularly enough and totally ignores all Disney plush in favor of SpongeBob!!! I think because her dad stays home with her M-F she gravitates more towards boys toys, she's taken an interest in Woody and Buzz lately! We are working on getting Jessie to be her favorite.

Glad to hear that working from home is working for you! LOL! :) Sounds like you have a good routine that fits everything in there. That's great!

So, what happens to the dolls once they are shipped to Vietnam? Who gets them then?

Have a great eat-at-your-desk-and-work-in-your-pjs kind of day! ;)

I miss the interaction with (some) co-workers, but I don't miss having to wear a suit every day! :) Your job sounds heavenly...well, maybe if you had the Bose headphones to block out the tantrums... ;)
