My Daily Routine as a Work From Home Mom

A big thank you to Chicken of the Sea for partnering with me on  this post about my daily routine as a work from home mom. All opinions are my own.

Earlier this year I posted about all the ways I make a full-time income from home, and ever since then I’ve gotten  a lot of questions about how I make it all work. As it turns out, there are many of you who feel the same way I do about wanting to do it all – work from home while being more present for family.

I’ll be honest – it’s been a nutty year of trying lots of new things and trying to balance it all, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. (…Unless being independently  wealthy was on the table…then I’d totally take that.)

Today I’m sharing my daily routine as a work from home mom – which, as you’ll read, changes every single day.

What does my daily routine look like?

4:00 a.m.: Alarm goes off. Nope – not a typo!

I get dressed, make myself look (somewhat) presentable, grab a quick cup of coffee and head to my office to prepare for the first appointment of the day.

4:30 a.m.: Begin my morning side hustle: teaching ESL classes online. I love this work because it it’s fun and stress-free, and gives me the consistency I don’t always have with freelancing and blogging.

7:30 a.m.: Help my kids with the last of their morning routines, like brushing hair, signing forms, and packing lunches. My Daily Routine as a Work From Home Mom

A big thank you to Nellie’s Free Range Eggs for sponsoring this recipe, Southwest Breakfast Scramble. All opinions are mine alone.

School’s been back in session for just a few weeks, and we’re already on the struggle bus. Despite all of our planning and the best of intentions.

We passed right through the optimistic honeymoon phase – where lunches are prepped the night before, mornings run smooth, and projects are completed well in advance, instead of at the last minute.

We lingered in that happy place for about a week before reverting right back to where we ended school in the spring.

The crazy is real.

But.

I have been doing one thing right: meal prep.Southwest Breakfast Scramble Meal Prep Recipe
