Day 3: Get Your Kids Involved (Chapter Three)

How can you get your kids involved in what you’re working on? How can they experience what your job is like and contribute to it? For me, that meant allowing my kids to come with me on research trips or to meet people I was interviewing. Write a blog post about different ways you can involve your kids in your job, then stop by others’ blogs to see if you can use their ideas with this task!

My kids are already VERY INVOLVED!

They spend a lot of time each day asking me how many words I have, giving me ideas about things to add in (some of them are a little silly but they are 7 and 10) and telling me I can do it – when I want to quit.

They are my BEST cheerleaders!

I am also blessed to have an amazing mom! (I think I mentioned that before) She encourages me so much and I couldn’t do any of this without her! No she’s not one of the kids but she can’t be left out of the important area of how my family encourages me!

Currently, I don’t get a whole lot of writing done every day but if I get a thousand words a day, I’m happy. And no, I don’t always get a thousand words a day. But I’m  mom. I’m busy.

The kiddos help with that too. If I haven’t reached my target count for the day, they tend to turn into little task-masters and give me “that look” until I get going again.

GOD BLESS THEM! I couldn’t do any of it without them!

Do you need more Balance in your life? Would you consider implementing these suggestions into your own life? Would you tell us about it?

This post is part of the Balanced challenge with Tricia Goyer—and you can join, too!
