I'm not sure if I'm posting in the best forum. I am wondering how other mamas raising toddlers manage to do anything creative? I find it nearly impossible when nearly-3 DD is around as whenever I sit down to do something she wants to be on my lap helping. Every day I think that once she's in bed I'll do something but by the time it rolls around I'm just exhausted and I end up wasting time on the internet etc.
I used to be a working artist. I imagined I'd be making work while my (unborn) child was sleeping (haha!). Pre-child, when I worked full time in an office I'd go to the studio and stay late into the night. Now I spend the day with a 3 year old and don't seem to have the energy to begin something creative.
Is it me? Does anyone else find this familiar? Anyone have any ideas how to jumpstart my creativity again? I feel like I've lost my identity.
