Rachel and I started Club MomMe when our sons were 6 months old. We were sleep deprived, ambitious and wanted to conquer the world! Two moms with little resources and big plans decided to launch a social and educational community for moms and moms-to-be.
Our daily schedules quickly changed from focusing on our little guys and working during nap times to apologizing during conference calls while we kiss tears from a fall to keep the little ones content. As our little guys grow, so do we. We often blog, email and do diaper changes at the same time. We video chat with each other while prepping lunch and dinner and often text at the worst possible times (think mid-temper tantrum, blow out poop diapers, and conveniently while grocery shopping). We have learned to integrate Club MomMe into our lives and have it work with us.
We have learned our limitations and pushed them beyond expectations. Who knew Rachel would be most efficient working late at night and me in the early morning hours? We did not! There are days when we question ourselves. Are we pushing too hard? Is our family time being sacrificed? The answers are yes. We are sacrificing time with out little ones, but we are also blessed to be able to work at home with them and around their schedules. We wouldn't have it any other way!
The most valuable lesson that Rachel and I have learned through this process is that being a Mompreneur takes support, encouragement and understanding. We are delighted that we have met other Mompreneurs along the way who have been our number one cheerleaders! Thank you to Lyne, Sharon, Meredith, Courtney, and tons of others who have provided guidance to us along the way.
