I finally finished doing the assignment. I timed myself and I was not able to make the 30 minutes required time for this task. I am always not successful when it comes to timing. I actually started doing the task 2 days ago. You know I am a full time mom and I cannot do this task when my little toddler is around. I tried doing this task using pen and paper but he keeps on grabbing my pen and crumpling the paper. When I am in front of the computer, he would put his hand on the keyboard and will start typing. That is why I ended up submitting the assignment too late or not submitting at all. Sorry for that and I look forward to see your comments or corrections on my assignment. I am really eager to learn from you.
If timing is a problem maybe it would be good for you to do one part at a time, for 5-10 minutes when your toddler is preoccupied eating or napping. It may be more productive this way.
On another note, do you use a sling or backpack for him? If he is two and you have been doing so since he was little you would be strong enough for the next suggestion, if not your back may not be strong enough.
When my daughter was born I took her in a sling or backpack everywhere. I even took her to my dance lessons. She was in a sling while I danced until she was 2. When she was a baby she did not like to be down, so I even had her in the sling when I cooked and baked. I learned this from a friend whose baby did not walk until three. Every time I visited her, baby was in the backpack while she worked in the kitchen.
If baby is in a backpack you can write or work at the computer without him grabbing.
I’m going to post this as a question on Dear Kim and Facebook to see what people might suggest.
Do you have an ideas or suggestions on how a busy mom with a toddler can study?
