I’ve decided that there are specific things in my life that I need to fix. I also have decided that I can not fix them all at once. I’m superwoman… but not THAT super of a woman. I also find that if I write things down I tend to better focus, so I’m hoping to have 3 questions each month that I can find the answers to and make the change to make them happen. I also though that they should focus on the 3 most important areas of my life.
(in no particular order)
I think some of you are surprised to see Drew’s name up there. It’s not that we’re unhappy but there are things in our relationship (as there are with all relationships) that need changing. I think this is a sticky area because you don’t want to hurt them, but you also need things fixed. I will go into that one further on another day.
Today I’m focusing on the kids, and since I’ve read this blog on other mom’s blogs I’m putting it here:
How do you do after school? I’m tired, I’ve been hot (lately, that probably won’t be an issue anymore) and sometimes a bit hungry… and my kids are all those same things. Get us all together and we’re a whole mess o’ fun. I want to give one on one time to each schooler to see what’s happened during the day and tell them how much I love them. Instead of that I seem to get caught-up in the other less-important items and not focus on them. This week is a good week to work on it, because they’re out early each day.
It was easier before, because only Conner came home so I could focus on him. But now I have 2 sometimes-ornry kids to focus on and I just feel overwhelmed by it all. I feel like my life is bipolar in that I am playing patty-cake one minute with my tiny sweets. And the next minute they’re screaming through the house wanting snacks and shoving papers at me.
I just need a happy medium, and another brain – perhaps one that can actually focus this time.
Now is the time you can share a bit of your brain with me. Oh ye great moms, I worship your greatness. COMMENT.
