You often hear about people burning the candle at both ends. As a single mom of three kids under 7, I'm definitely guilty.
I have a tendency to take too much on my shoulders and to plow through it until it's done.
It tends to make me cranky.
Cranky with my kids.
Cranky with my friends.
And it magnifies what might otherwise be minor problems.
Problems like when my 18 month old wakes up at 4:45 in the morning.... Or when I can't find my son's shoes...
I find myself yelling too much. And that's not who I am. It's not who I want to be. So, it's up to me to change it.
I have to find a better way to handle all that I have to do. I need to do it so that my kids don't have memories of a stressed out, overworked, overwrought mom. I want their childhood memories to be of having fun.
Of laughing and playing...
And that's one more thing I'm willing to take on to make it happen.
How do you get everything done and still have time to be a fun parent? I'm open to suggestions...
