What now?

my head is aching.  I get so tired.  A gaggle of girls keeps me from me.  I want to work, but I am so drained.  I know I can do this. I can.  Then we had another babe, and upside down I turned.  Oh, but love. Where is my balance?  Maybe I have actually found it, but must stop comparing myself to others.  My life is my life.  I am the mother I aspire to be.  I am with my children. Always.  But, still, I feel low at times. Breathe.  Sleep.

  1. i can relate. i'm a good mom, but not always a good me. homeschooling prevents me from having any time to remember who i am some days. or months.

  2. Thanks. Sometimes I just have to let it out! I only homeschool one of my girls, but with the babe always tugging at my leg the whole time. It is still a learning process for us!

  3. i never anticipated only having one kid, but apparently we don't always get to plan out that part of our destiny. and even though i was kind of sad about that, it does make certain things easier, like schooling. plus, my daughter has aspergers, so she's a bit of a challenge when it comes to schooling. i guess God knew what he was doing when he only gave me one.
