Starting your own business is hard.
Especially when you started it less than 6 months ago,
and you are trying to grow it into something great.
So this quote is one to always keep close.
There are so many days I just want to sit at my laptop and create.
But I'm a Mommy first.
And that will forever be my most important job.
My little man needs me to be 100% present in his life.
And I want to give him 100% of myself.
When he is awake I make the biggest effort
to put down my phone
and close up the laptop.
We read, sing, dance, and play with cars for hours.
I watch his personality and imagination grow day by day
and I wouldn't trade that for all the sales in the world.
I know these moments will pass all too soon,
and I will eventually have more time than I need.
I will wish for these crazy, busy, stress filled days
of early mornings and late nights
back more than anything.
But for right now, it's difficult to fit a business
into being a full time mommy and wife.
Sometimes I feel like I don't have the time I need
to focus on things other than my family
but when you are passionate and motivated
somehow you make it work.
I hope one day my little shop will be a big shop
but until then I'm okay with growing it slowly.
I'm blessed to have the customers that I do,
and even more blessed to have the best full time job in the world,
being a mommy to my sweet little babe.
