Have you ever had something not go as you planned? Or maybe something unexpected happened and you had to just adjust? Well isn’t that what life brings everyday especially when you have kids?!
So I have to share with you what happened to me today at an appointment. I met with an amazing woman today from my womens networking group to get to know each other and our businesses. When I scheduled the appointment I made it clear that I would have to bring my 15 month old son with me. She was totally on board and she is about to be a brand new Grandma herself soon! (Congrats!!) I get to the restaurant and my son was doing pretty good considering he is in need of a nap, his molars are about to pop and just all around not a happy camper at the moment. Still I pushed through! I get up to order my food and my son lost it. Screaming and crying to the point that he made himself sick. He projectile throws up on the table and all over himself and the restaurant floor. Luckily it wasn’t all over our food huh?! All of this happened in the first 10 minutes of the appointment. Now.. I had two choices here. First, would be to get upset, embarrassed and leave. Second, would be to make sure he is taken care of and continue on with the agenda. So I chose #2.
That got me thinking that this isn’t going to be the last time something unexpected happens and how I carry myself and deal with the situation shows the type of person I am. This is what a mom in business can do! I have been known for doing 3-way calls while changing my sons diaper in the stroller when I’m out for a walk. I have also been known for being on a skype call to the Philippines while nursing. It is all in how we deal with things at that particular moment and that we have to GO WITH THE FLOW!
