I had another Holiday Gift Guide post scheduled for today but I think sharing what has been on my mind lately is more important. The Gift Guide series can wait ;) 

Balance is something I have been struggling with lately. How do you balance motherhood, keeping up with house work, the kids, the blog, the husband, school projects (mind you my son is 2) and now the Holidays quickly approaching?? ohhh i almost forgot...AND Olivia's latest trend...the temper tantrums otherwise known as kicking, screaming on the top of her lungs in public and throwing herself on the floor. The beauty of having a strong willed toddler. 

The past couple weeks feel like have been jam packed with events and happenings and the fact that our washer failed on me, right before all the hustle and bustle started didn't help one bit. I am still catching up with laundry. not fun. at. all. 

Life has gotten so much busier with Gus being in school 5 days a week, although it's just half days. It feels like we go go go ALL the time. And from now until the end of the year, it isn't getting any better. I have no idea when I am going to fit in all the holiday shopping. I suppose Amazon Prime will help. 

Gus turns three next week and I can hardly believe it. I really want time to just slow down so I have a chance to balance everything out. And even though I am home, I feel like I am not necessarily spending as much time with the little ones as I should. Social Media may have something to do with that. mom fail. and the feeling of guilt begins. 

Are my standards too high? Am I totally crazy? because sometimes I feel like I am. The other night after bathing the kids, I started putting Olivia's Pajamas on Gus without even realizing it. 

Okay I'm done rambling. Thanks for listening ;)

  1. Elda, don't worry eventually it will slow down for you! A massage is in order. I was wondering where you got that cute turkey cut out for Gus? My nephew is obsessed so this is something I'd love to share with him, he also turns 3 in March. xoxo =)
