I actually get asked this question a lot. “How Do You Do It All? or Are you Super Mom?” For me, I’m a working Mom, I have 2 kids ages 7 and 2. I’m also a wife to a teacher/coach that isn’t home much, and I’m a Blogger. Like Most Moms, I do all the grocery shopping, 90% of the cooking, all the laundry, and cleaning. I help do all the homework, set up/shuttle to activities/play dates, and handle all the Dr/Dentist appointments. I make all the lunches/fill up all the water bottles, and help pick out clothes. It’s a never ending job. I know a lot of you are in the same boat! Honestly, I don’t know how I manage it all. I can say that not everything gets done every single day. I got some advice from a former Principal when I was pregnant with my daughter. She told me that I was never going to be perfect. And that one day I’d probably be a good teacher and I might be a bad Mom. I could one day be a great Mom and a bad Wife. Life isn’t perfect! I’m constantly thinking about what she said almost 8 years ago.
There are days when I feel so great like I’ve accomplished so much and I go to bed so happy. Then there are the days I get discouraged and I’m mad/sad/angry at the world and feeling like I have so much to do and so little time. Do you ever feel like that?
You take what is important to you and do what you can. Every day I know my kids will have eaten, they will have clean clothes on (maybe), and pretty much their basic needs will have been met! If there is any time left over, I try and do things I need to do. Like blogging, making photo books, exercising, or chatting with friends. I have Mommy friends that are avid readers. They are always talking about some great book they read. I always think “When do they read?” I also have friends that are in extremely awesome shape. They work really hard at it and look amazing. That’s what they make a priority and that’s great! Everyone is different.
The next time someone asks “Are you a Super Mom?” I’m going to say “YES I am, and YOU are too!” Go Moms!
Did you ever see this? This was a cute movie that came out a few years
ago. It didn’t get much hype but I could really relate. It’s
all about a busy working Mom and how much she juggles on a given day. If
you are a Mom, you can relate! You might even feel sorry for her 🙂 If
you are not a Mom, it might make you appreciate a Mom you know.
