Balancing Act

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hey there fellow mamas!

 

I'm new to this forum but would love some thoughts on my plans...

My family is getting ready to make the transition to me being a HS mom full-time in a few months.  I currently work full-time out of the home.  Our ds is nearly 5 and is at a daycare during the day now.  I have two (small-time) businesses that haven't as yet provided much in the way of an income and I've been considering taking one or two children in for daycare.  I know that I will have a lot on my plate, but I also don't want to put my family in a bad place financially.  Any thoughts?

 

*My two businesses are:

  "A Novel Idea Books and Miscellany" (I create custom, personalized memory books for people, as well as making candles,  soaps, bath salts, and lotions)

 "Blackthorn Farm" (I have a large organic garden and chickens and I sell produce and eggs along with fruit from our small orchard, to a few local customers and at two local farmers markets)

I love that you have a farm-- what about running an educational program for pre-k that incorporates your children as well.  I know if there was something like that here I would totally join and pay the dues...I think lots of SAHM look for opportunities like that...

That is an excellent idea!  Thank you!  I will definitely look into something like that.  I really love the idea of bringing more awareness to people about where there food comes from.
