What to do when the demands of motherhood pull you in a million different directions?
I feel like I'm always doing seventeen things at once; phone calls while nursing, cooking while refereeing, shopping while nursing, showering and commanding a storm trooper landing crew (no joke!).
Going to the bathroom while nursing (don't judge), driving while teaching letter sounds, resting while nursing and writing this blog....you get the idea.
Sometimes it feels like nothing ever gets my 100% attention because I'm being pulled in so many different directions - and sometimes I mean literally.....pulled.....
When I feel overwhelmed, I remember something my mom told me recently. She said, "you know, with three kids all needing something, it's ok if someone isn't happy".
In this Pinterest driven crazy world where technology has made it easier to compare with the Joneses - it's hard to remember that it's okay to not be perfect in everything ALL. THE. TIME.
Reality tho - not so perfect. It would be easier to accomplish perfection if I have 7 arms, no need for sleep, food, or the bathroom, and unlimited patience.
In the meantime, I'll have to just settle for multitasking - asking for help when I need it - and be okay if things aren't 100%.
The most important thing is love in a home - and we have bagoodles of that.
