Thank you for sharing a topic about this, I can definitely relate! I am the mother of 2 little kids (a girl with almost 2 years and a boy with a little over 3) and I am so glad I decided to go freelance!
When my eldest was born, I had already decided that if I wanted to have kids I needed to take the leap and go freelance. I was working like crazy, still building a reputation and I even ended up being the only crazy mom working in the hospital after I had a super long labor which turned into a c-section... But then things got better, more stable, and I was already quite organized. Then SURPRISE - another baby! That was when all hell went loose! Totally worth it though
Organization is definitely key and small breaks throughout the day are crucial to keep your mental sanity and productivity. But I can't even imagine myself working a corporate job and spending all day without my kids. Freelancing provides freedom, peace of mind, and flexibility to really enjoy your family and your kids' first years - and that's priceless nowadays!
