The Kid Keeper

It's no secret, life is busy. I am constantly feeling pulled between my jobs, kids, husband, home, activities, hobbies, etc...

One of my jobs allows me to work from my home office.
The pro: I get to be at home more with my children.
The con: often, my two young kids are home while I have to fit some office time in.

I struggle to find the balance to spend time with them, as well as encourage independent play so that I can concentrate on the task at hand. I want to do a good job of both. I try to make the most of my office time while they nap, but sometimes its inevitable that they will be awake. I feel like every time I sit down to do a quick office task I have two little ones hanging on my office chair, spinning me in circles and competing for my attention.

My goal for this: Create a small space in the office that accommodates their needs, can hold their attention for short periods, while I can complete my task efficiently.

Exhibit A:
Unused Office Closet + 2 free abandoned chairs + Creativity
= The Kid Keeper

There are built in shelves inside that you can't see to accommodate the monster collection of craft supplies. The two doors can be easily closed when not in used or I don't want to look at the monster mess to conceal the area.
