It’s just one week til’ P is one.  CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?  It disgusts me.
But that’s a blog for another day.
For the power of 3 is starting to overwhelm me.
Helping in the classrooms
Enriching P
Freaking calorie counting and weight watchers points
Working out
It’s just piling on.  Some times I feel SO on top of things.  But, it’s been nice just me and my less-than-mobile P… but those times are a changing.  Things aren’t getting done when she’s awake.
It’s killing me
I have SO much to do….
But perhaps playing with the shape sorter is just what the doctor ordered.
It’s only a few years til’ it will be HER classroom I’m helping in….
Anyway.  Three.  It’s a lot more than two.

    I hear you there. Enjoy playing with the sorter and hanging out with miss P. N is two in a couple of weeks and it is killing me that he is so big.

    I think just about every parent has that feeling of ‘I have SO much to do.’ That is pretty much me all the time. I try to find ways to either involve the kids in what I am doing (letting them scrub the floor with me or ‘help’ me cook) or find something that I can have them do in parallel (I’ve gotten Jared to run laps around the back yard while I weeded giving me a high five each time he passed).
    Keep trying until you find something that works – then things will change and you will have to find something new.:P Time is a limited resource – so if new things come in then you might have to give up something you were doing before. I remember my mom telling me when she had her 7 kids at home she only felt a little guilty passing along the clipboards in RS without signing up. Now she does sign up because she can. To everything there is a season.
    It helps me(sometimes) to appreciate what I do get done and that I am able to do all the things I do do (yes, it says do do). (Other times I just rant in my head, ‘but I WANT to do that. WHY can’t I get that done?’) Just got to make sure the pebbles, sand and water aren’t pushing out the big rocks in the glass, right?
    They say it’s not juggling until you have more objects than you do hands…so with 3 kids and 2 hands you qualify. :)

    You mean your human too. I was seriously wondering the last few days how you do it all-great blogs, three kids, working, creative and crafty projects, scrap booking, working out, housework, gardening, etc. Glad to know you too feel overwhelmed at times. Hey your not alone and sometimes I too just have to make myself play with my kids. For the most part I always enjoy it when I do and know it was the best way to spend my time. It is just hard sometimes to pull myself away from the never ending list of things I have to do.

    Seriously, this blog post makes me feel much better about myself. I feel like I started to go downhill with everything right about the time Sophia was P’s age. Not that I was Hilary level organized before that, but wow. I was really organized for me. I figure it won’t happen again till Sophie is in Kindergarten. And that’s only if we don’t have another baby between then and now.
