Hi Jackie. Don’t worry, life is really busy when you have young children. Do the best you can. Sometimes it isn’t possible to have a daily creative slot. Different phases of our lives present different challenges to our time. You are probably at one of the busiest as a Mom. You might have a bit more time for yourself once your daughter starts school.

Try not to feel guilty about taking a bit of time for yourself. You’ll be much happier that way and this is a greater gift to your family than if you are cranky and resentful because you are sacrificing so much of yourself.

Nobody has a perfect creative routine. You just have to snatch the nooks and crannies of time that you can. Take care xx
