Cylinder #9: managing your blog site! Wow - you are amazing. I LOVE reading your posts - I can relate to so many of them, working part-time from home and having hubby and 3 kids, all with such different personalities. I jump at reading your blogs when they show up in my in-box. In fact I have deleted a bunch of others because yours are always honest and hilarious at the same time. Have to run now - my kid #2 is harrassing kid #3 as I type. Bye.
Good Morning~I have just finished reading "America's Got Talent, Me? Not so much..." . I only have a single little one but still feel as if I'm doing that very same balancing act on a daily basis. It's comforting to know that I am not alone in this. My hubby and I decided that having a pet would be good for our little one and me being the animal lover took it to the next level. I have filled her world with a couple each of dogs and cats, as well as a few ducks and chickens. She adores her pets and it has encouraged her to treat them all with the love and respect they so deserve and crave. Feeding them, however, falls into my hands (sometimes she helps but it gets messy). So, at mealtimes I have many hungry mouths to feed including the people:) This is one of my cylinders to go along with the many others you mentioned. We enjoy our crazy life but it can definitely leave a mom feeling like something hasn't gotten the amount of attention it should have. I try not to let it get the best of me and remember that whatever it is, it will be there patiently waiting for me later. I try to make my child most saturated attention and try when possible to throw hubby some TLC, too:) That usually results in the snowball affect when it comes to the passing the love on to the animals:) Thanks for your insights, as always. PS Have you tuned in to the Earth Cam at the Greenville Zoo in South Carolina? A baby giraffe is expected to be born any time now. My family has really come together in the past couple days watching and waiting for the new arrival:) Google: Greenville Zoo, click on WATCH LIVE! It's kind of like adopting a new pet but one I don't have to feed and care for. We have started growing attached to Autumn, the mom-to-be and we are all very excited about the baby's arrival!
There never seems to be enough hours, days, arms, legs, hands, eyes to balance everything we do in a day. Yet, somehow, miraculously, we still manage to keep the house from burning down, the kids from starving and most days, everyone has at least one pair of clean socks and knickers and we and our hubbies still manage a snuggle before we pass out from exhaustion. Thank the Lord for small mercies ;)
Michelle, you have made my day. Thank you so much for such fantastic feedback! Now go handcuff those kids together and make yourself a cup of tea ;p
Carolyn, thank you for such a wonderful comment! Your home sounds amazing and your little girl is one lucky kid with all those pets and such a tuned in mama. I will definitely google the baby giraffe - THANK YOU for telling me about it. Thanks again for your beautiful words. I appreciate it!
