Oh Danielle, I LOVE this! Your home is so beautiful and so are you. I just think it's fantastic you wear your baby while you work. And I only caught on to babywearing on my 3rd baby, too! :)Steph
Great video! Love it! You are a natural! And I love how baby slept through the whole thing!
What a wonderful blessing to be able to work while wearing your baby. Your clients must feel so at ease with how welcoming you are!
HOLY SHIZNIT! Your kitchen is gorgeous!
Thanks, everyone! My baby usually sleeps through meetings (I try really hard to time it that way - it will be easier once she's a bit older & on a regular nap/sleep schedule), but she's also been known to wake to be fed (which I can do easily/discreetly in the sling too, I use a L'oved Baby nursing shawl over the sling sometimes too) & to need a new diaper, which just gives my clients a moment to talk amongst themselves too while I scoot into the next room & back quickly. I welcome my clients' babies to the meetings too, though it's not as great for older children given (1) how distracted my clients are when their older, walking-age children are present, (2) the nature of the topic of discussion if they're estate planning clients, & (3) the fact that my office is one of the only non-child-proofed rooms in the whole house!Erin - It is *hard* work to make this work, but it's also so worth it! I asked my older daughters the other day about getting some office space outside the home (where there's some great new construction just down the street, walking distance) & they were adamantly opposed. Charlie - Thanks, man. That's what brought us to Hingham, and where my husband & I cooked up a fabulous Thanksgiving dinner, broken fridge/freezer & all!
This video was so impressive. Love the kitchen.
It took me three babies, too. ('Cept now I'm wearing my fourth.) Great job on the video!
Inspiring Danielle! Keep up the momentum!-Elena M
