Pas grave, le travail attendra... alors que vos bébés eux vont grandir si vite, alors profitez-en bien.
Gros bisous à tous.
Même de dos il a déjà bien changé...

Love, love, love!

I used to bring Meg when I was teaching drawing classes to adults and she was about the age your boys are. It worked for a while, but once she started being more "awake" I had to start leaving her with the babysitter. It was fun while it lasted!

You're supposed to get work done with babies around?? Nobody ever told me that. ;) Look at how big he is already! (the baby, not Edgar...haha)

Gosh, get work done with babies around?!? ha ha. Okay, I've done it. Besides the obvious that I work from home, and can manage a routine there with my son at home (and there was not much work going on when he was really small), I taught at college level two years ago and brought him to school while I marked. I brought toys, and the best tool - a jolly jumper! He jumped in that thing for about 1/2 hour which ate up lots of time. Other than that, he napped and layed on a blanket...
Now that he's two, I might try to bring him again, as he might colour or paint on the floor while I mark, but I figure it's just too dangerous to give a toddler crayons next to adult artwork!

As far as working from home with a baby or toddler, I work around naps and the more quiet times. It's all about developing a routine I suppose!

Good luck!

Too funny! When they're very little, it's hard because they're so cute! You just want to touch them all the time to see if they're real.

However, I'm proud to say I could take my youngest to work with me for the first year or so. He'd play while sitting in his comfy stroller and I'd get about six hours of work done in three hours.

My oldest? No way that would have worked. He would have figured out how to roll himself to stairs in a one-story building and go off the edge!

Glad you all are having fun! Hope you're getting a little sleep.
: )!

Talented children in the making, i can only imagine how awesome these two are going to be with you two as parents!

Don't force it edgar! i'm sure there's innate creativity...

it's less easy with twins. With one baby, you can put him/her in a sling or front carrier and get stuff done.

I'd like to take my "babies" to work, but some of my coworkers are allergic to dogs and cats. ;)
