Like most Mother’s Days, ours came and passed in the usual way - with certain expectations that are almost impossible to meet, because, well, you are still mothering your way through the day.
A month ago, I (Chelsea) moved back into the studio after 2+ years of working from home. Over the last couple of years, school and childcare haven't always been consistent for our family. We needed flexibility to get through, so it made sense to move my work home.
We've been grateful for our ability to adjust day to day without permission from anyone, but it has been challenging to live in a state of continuous adaptation. For the most part, we have been buoyed up by our clients and their encouragement as we rolled through the cumulative trials of this time.
