Lone Free: Freelancing and SAHM-ing (A Sticky Situation)

Being a stay-at-home mom is challenging, but trying to juggle child-raising with freelance writing is like juggling cooking knives and kittens. Or that’s the impression I get from reading this post by local mommyblogger Melanie at Lone Free.

My favorite freelancing-while-mothering mishap occurred last summer, when I met with interior designers at a historic manor that was being staged for a high-dollar fundraising event. I was dropping by to snap some reference shots for later writing, and I had to bring Beau; I had no other choice. At one point, we were left alone in the dining room with a 100-year-old trompe l’oeil mural … and he licked it.
