I am in that place...
the bone weary,
need to cry..
I know that it is not unique to single moms..or dads..
I know as a full time stay at home mom..
I was often wiped beyond description!
I am so tired!!
and trying to balance what needs to be balanced
and learn what to ignore...
I can't do it all!!
I teach 2 year olds...
I love my job!!
But, nine 2 year olds can be a teensy bit..
Then I pick my 3 children up..
ages 11,9 and 7..
Then after an hour at home..
to do homework..
I head out again, with them in tow..
to teach survival swimming
to children ages 1-6..
Then home for dinner..
time with MY own kids...
caring for all the pets:)
baths, bed, dishes, you know the drill!
Tonight before heading out for the 2nd part of my work day.
my 3 children lay relaxing on the couch..
they had done their homework,
put away shoes and backpacks...
and taken care of their own animals...
I looked in the girls room...
drawers were open,
clothes half in...
light was on..
Shut the door and looked the other way!!
Its too much!
I honestly don't know how to find the hours..
to do ALL the correction ALL the time..
and how to find the energy to care
if the DRAWER is left open!
They get great grades, are great kids...
are kind (except to eachother LOL)
in fact the principal called me
and their dad
to tell us
how great son is doing
in middle school..
how respectful, ect...
So, can't I let some stuff go??
and of so what? when??
how do you find
How do you know what you make time for ..
and what you just can't??
Just another part of the learning curve I guess..
But I would like to hear how you do it.....
