Working from home makes it easier for sure! I do the same, taking care of household chores in between calls. I think it’s impossible to be an effective parent or employee trying to work from home and watch a little one (based on my experience when my kiddo is sick!)
But like you said, although it’s easier, the mental load is just as stressful for me. I feel like I have to work harder as a remote employee because the majority of my team do actually go into an office and see each other regularly. I also feel more pressure to keep up with things around the house because I am at home during the day. My husband is a huge help but it’s still a lot of pressure I put on myself.
