Hi there. Happy Monday!
We're struggling here... After a lovely weekend, Sam is g-r-u-m-p-y today. (Ok, ok, I get it... No more Grace's Pizza for mom. Tear.) We are doing a lot of bouncing and head rubbing and pj wearing today. Goodbye productivity - we'll try again tomorrow. :)
Speaking of productivity, have you seen the previews for the new movie I Don't Know How She Does It starring Sarah Jessica Parker? (I'm feeling a girls night this weekend.)
It seems to be all over the media circuit these days, and it is striking a little too close to home for this new mom... I have only THREE weeks left of maternity leave, then it's back to the grind. I'm trying to soak up these last weeks; but, I'm beginning to freak out a little. I can barely get a single thing done when I'm home all day, much less working full time too...
Here are the five things that are important to me and I'd like to be able to maintain most days once I go back to work:
1. Spend sweet time with my baby boy.
2. Spend quality time with Jeff.
4. Cook & eat healthy meals.
5. Keep my house relatively clean and laundry up to date.
Am I crazy? I don't feel like these goals are unrealistic, but it is honestly SO overwhelming to think about right now.
I really don't know how I'm going to do it; except, I know many of you already do... It's got to be possible, right?
So, tell me, how DO you do it all?
I'd LOVE some tips and advice - pretty please! :)
Thanks to everyone who participated... I loved reading what you love about being a mom - those are things I need to remember on these kinds of days. :) (Girl, email me to claim your prize!)
