Hi guys! A few people have asked me how I’m working on White Nest, developing new product, doing custom orders, etc. with a baby. Yep, a bouncing, healthy, funny, amazing and oh-can-be-so-difficult six-month-old baby.
So I had to share this classic “working mom, everything went wrong situation…”.
Picture this: Me running around the house, trying to get the camera set up with the tripod, changing clothes and getting the lighting just so so I could take some photos of the jewelry line. All the while, Oliver is sitting/rolling on the floor, whining/crying and I don’t have a clue why (perhaps because I wasn’t entertaining him…:). So I’m singing to him, talking to him, making goofy noises to make him happy, all the while running around the living room…
So I decide (more like HE decides) that these noises were not going to work for him, so I pick him up. Picking up = happy baby. But I knew that I wanted to get these photos done when the daylight was good. So I’m testing out the camera and you guessed it, a giant amount of spit-up (a nice word for vomit) comes shooting out at me and all over my fresh clothes. I groan, quickly change and we’re back at it.
I try putting him down…no good. So I resolve to the fact that I’m going to have to hold him and take these photos. I set the self-timer, run in front of the camera and this is what I get:
A photo with two chubby bebe feet. I just start laughing and realize this is absolutely adorbs.
I hike him up higher and off to photo-taking we go! I took a moment (after I calmed down from my frantic running around) and realize that this working mom stuff is hard.
But I wouldn’t change it for the world. :)
By the way, it’s the last day for jewelry SALE! I’m not sayin’, but just sayin’…
