I have just started to seriously work-at-home in the past couple of weeks. I write on the web for about three different people and I need to get all my jobs done before the end of the night. So I am fighting with my son for the computer and he's fighting with me because he wants my attention. I have started to get into a routine that works. He goes on the computer in the morning after I check my emails, then I do my offline research work, because he won't bug me then. Then we go out for a bit. The poor guy feels like he lives at an office sometimes. Then mostly all afternoon I work on the computer while he plays and watches TV.
I feel bad that he does spend that time alone. My office is in the dining room and living room so I am practically sitting with him. But the benefits are great. I get to be with him all day. I don't trust the daycare around here so that's our only option. Thank goodness I can write at home.
