They say the days are long but the years are short and it is oh so true. I am just about 6 months into this life as a mom of two and I still don’t quite have my grasp around it. On some days I think I’ve got it and others come no where close. It leaves me wondering, will I ever have it or do I just throw my mascara on, sweep the Cheerios under the couch and just roll with it?
Between dealing with the emotional roller coaster that is a two year old, a sleepless baby that depends on me for nourishment, a house that doesn’t clean itself, quite often the two things that need the most attention get left out. Myself and my husband.
The kids are my world and their needs throughout the day are the outmost important. I wouldn’t change a thing about the time we spend playing and creating, except the odd nap or two would be nice.
I guess the real struggle comes down to the house work and me time. No I don’t want an all White House that’s sparkling clean all the time. I want a house that’s warm and lived in. One were you might trip over the odd Princess Sofia slipper or find the odd toy on your bathroom counter.
I need to figure out a balance to this juggling act and I need to figure it out quick. With March upon us we are headed full steam into Evans busy time at work. This means countless days were he’s out of the by 5:30am and not home until 8pm or later. It makes for some really long and tough days, but it is what it is.
I need to know your secrets friends, how do you do it? Or how do you pretend to do it? How do you keep the laundry off the floor, the toilets clean and the bellies full? And most importantly where do you squeeze in time for yourself and how do you make it a priority?
