This post is for all of you supermoms out there. Don’t stop reading….anyone who reads this blog in my opinion is a supermom. I have read your blogs and I am so impressed by all that you do. You have such cute ideas for your kids. You are always on the go taking your kids places. From your pictures, your homes look clean an tidy and things seem to be in order.
HOW DO YOU DO IT???? Now, I know that nobody is perfect and I know that you all have trials. You are so strong and are able to make your way through them. I know that everyone has bad days. I also know that I am extremely grateful for my trials. I would never want to trade trials with any one of you, as I am sure that none of you would want to trade trials with anyone else in this world.
Having said that, I am posting this question out into the void. How do you balance life? Lately I feel like I am caught between the eternal pull of motherhood. I feel that I am only able to do a mediocre job at everything and nothing is ever completely pulled together.
*My house is never as clean or tidy as it should be (and I KNOW that a lot of people are able to accomplish this)
*I am not able to spend all of the quality time with my children. I know that they are only young for a small period of time and I feel that I am jipping them out of time with me when I stop to clean the house or make a craft.
*I am not able to get any time for me (I know that this is very selfish, but I am just laying it on the line.) I have a huge room downstairs filled with amazing sewing and crafting supplies. I have a ton of ideas and desire to get it done. What I do, sells well on Etsy and Ebay (it is nice to have the extra spending money for the kiddos,) I just don’t ever seem to find the time to do it.
*There is a simple answer ofcourse is to wake up early or stay up late. Lately though, I can’t. Kelton is FINALLY sleeping through the night and I my body has just kind of given up and is saying “LET ME SLEEP.” I am in bed by 10 and my kids are up at 7.
I need to find balance. I need to find a way to get it all done. I don’t have to be perfect. I just want to get myself to the point where I am not constantly stressed and torn. I would love to hear any advice that anyone has to give me on the subject. How do you do it?
