Balance

I know everyone has gone through this or is going through this, I hope. Cody was born so at first I was just trying to figure out how to breathe and take care of a baby. Now that I can do more and more it's hard to find a balance between keeping a clean house, and self, and having a life of my own (does that sound awful?) and playing with my son, spending time with him and holding him. I swear SWEAR my house is alergic to staying clean, it might explode if it's clean for longer than 24 hours. Even in the balance of all of this Kevin is working a lot, at least he is on a break from school for around a month. It was hard when he would leave around 7 and not come home til 9 or so, It doesn't seem that bad to some, and really I should be thankful. I guess this is just the new chapter to my life and I'm so glad for it, I'm just learning how to live it. I think it was Kelly Ripa said in a magazine once that children are like pancakes you pretty much burn the first one and then figure it out after that. I don't even know if I am making any sense. Please tell me I'm not the only one trying to find a balance.

Amen! I think it is so hard to find that balance and as your life changes and your family grows, you will just juggle a whole new set of responsibilities. I think the most important thing is to look in the mirror every day and say something genuinly nice and true about yourself. The other thing is to set one goal a day...just ONE. Even if it's to call and make that doctor's appointment, accomplishing something will make everything you didn't accomplish seem a little less important.

Suzi!!! Don't be so hard on yourself!!! Every mom goes through that. You've only had that little guy for 2 months! When has a HUGE life change normalized in 2 short months?? Don't worry, things will get normal, Cody will find a schedule, then you can plan your schedule around that. Julie's right, just try to accomplish one thing everyday. And make a small list so that you can check it off, then you will feel so good seeing that item disappear!

Girl, its been forever but I just read your blog and caught up on your life! Hope thats ok, I alos have a little one, mine however is 18 months old, I live with my mother in law in Utah and I totally don't have it down to a science, but one thing a day is a great way to start and be flexable, schedules are great but aren't a must! I hope we can get together when you move down here! I could use some more friends, at least some to take me shopping cause I have NO idea what I am doing!
