The (motherhood) balancing act...
So no surprise that I don't get to work as much as I'd like to, and I have to turn down many custom orders to work on one person at a time. I just don't have the time. I think about sending Hunter to day care or pulling all nighters but reality is I can't do either.
Hunter is 15 months today and I thought it would get easier with time, that I would get used to it, find a routine/rhythm... ha... ha? Little man pulls fast ones, he's like a ninja. He's hit the major separation anxiety stage, which is exhausting.
Good news: I can sketch and lay out plans while playing with him.
Bad news: I'm not in the studio making.
Good news: my sketch book is full and it is exciting stuff.
Bad news: I'm not making.
and on top of everything we are **thinking** about having another baby. I'm so torn. I love being a mom, I want my son to be a big brother and have someone to grow up with. I see larger familes and know that the pay off would be great... just have to give up my art for a little bit.
Jen Mecca, Judi Tavil, any other moms out there.. When were you able to find a balance? How did family planning and your desire to make work out?
