Having babies is not easy. They take up all your time and trying to do anything other than entertain/feed/change/stop them climbing on stuff can be near impossible. And if they happen to be of the sleep-hating variety – it can be even more difficult. Not only do you now have even less time, but when you do get a minute to yourself there is a good chance that a lot of the time you will feel too exhausted to embark on anything constructive!
Working from home, running a business, juggling full time work and parenting, overcoming a physical or mental illness or actually keeping children in one piece all day long on barely any sleep is not easy. But it is not impossible.
This series of articles called Tired Parents Can Take Over The World, shares the stories of mums and dads who have not only survived parenthood but have achieved success since having children!
I hope they will inspire you as they have me!
