We, here at Mama Says So, have been pushing the boundaries of what constitutes a ‘workstation’.
Exhibit One: Workstation of the Multi-tasking Mother-of-Two
This is the new bookshelf we recently got made for Ayaan’s room since his book collection outgrew the laundry basket that was housing it thus far. And I have appropriated the second shelf from the top for my laptop. This works on many counts. Firstly, I get to surf the net while hanging out with Ayaan. We both do our own thing mostly but I am available for questions and interventions as required. More importantly, Tarana requires me to spend a good proportion of the day carrying her so I can do that without getting bored or frustrated. So everyone's happy :)
Exhibit Two: It’s a ball… It’s a beanbag…
... It’s a beanball! This is Ayaan’s very own concoction. It's an old collapsible ball that he recently discovered and on this particular day, this was his choice of location to spend his daily quota of computer time.
Exhibit 3: Just because she's hard to ignore
When you are a 4-month old baby who spends most of her time sleeping, feeding or being rocked on Mama’s shoulder, work is mostly about kicking one’s legs in the air, swatting at objects that come along, putting one’s fingers in one’s mouth and trying very hard to turn over. So any flat surface will do but the spot under the mobile in the cot is much liked.
This picture was taken today – Tarana was inadvertently but appropriately dressed for the occasion. Happy Valentine’s Day!
