The Work Will Wait

This is my first year balancing work with a home life that includes a child. It has not been a tough transition, but it has required a mental shift.

I just keep coming back to this reminder.

“The work will wait while you show the child the rainbow, but the rainbow won’t wait while you finish the work.”

I love seeing Elijah’s curiosity as he explores the world in front of him. The work will never end, but each stage in my son’s life will pass. I’m not letting myself miss any of them.

  1. So true! I always tell myself I can focus on the house/ etc. when they are sleeping. And a perfect house calls for children that aren’t played with. Someday they’ll be grown and gone I can have a clean house then 🙂 ❤️
