Keeping Busy

Things have been pretty crazy around here lately.  I have been doing a freelance job that requires full time hours while working mostly from home.  The combo of hanging with Pearl and working 8 hours a day means I don't have a lot of time for the blog.  I would like to say that it will get better soon, but a few weeks after my contract is finished, I will be having a baby.  So, we shall see...
Pearl has been getting a bit impatient while I am on the laptop during her awake time so I try to do as much work as I can while she is asleep.  I do have to manage a few hours a day while she is awake though. In order to break it up and give her something to look forward to, we have been spending more time in the backyard.  I'm so glad the weather has been nice.  It's certainly helped me out a lot.  She loves collecting rocks and sticks and looking for birds.
If any of you work-at-home moms out there have other suggestions on how to keep a toddler independently busy, I would love to hear them!

P.S. I updated all of my sidebar links this weekend!  I realized it was getting ridiculous when I clicked on my twitter button and it didn't work.  Plus, the old photo of Pearl on my sidebar was taken when she was 3 month old.  The changes have been on my to-do list for almost a year now, but for some reason I just never got around to doing it.  Anyway, if you click on should work now :)


  1. You go girl! It sounds like you have a lot on your plate at the moment, but seem to be handling it all well. The blogging world will be here for you when you find time (I should know after my crazy long hiatus :-/). Pearl is such a sweetie. I love seeing all the photos of her and her adventures on IG. Her panda backpack is just too cute.

  2. gotta love a new face lift to the blog even when it is small things like the sidebar :) good luck keeping the little one entertained!

  3. i love the name Pearl! so cute! and your red hair looks fantastic!
