December 29

I think I have blog burnout.  Which is really sad when you think of how many people update daily, or almost daily all the time.  Maybe I just have commitment issues.  Either way, I suck, I know.

It's hard getting back into the swing of things, being the only adult in the house again.  I felt completely inundated yesterday.  It's so much easier to get things done with other people to run interference with the shorties.  It was obvious the kids were missing their sources of entertainment as well.  All day long I kept having to stop what I was doing to fix, tie, untie, or find something.  Put on gloves, help with this toy, get juice, play with me Mommy!  I think I was ready for school to be back in session before it would have even been time to leave for the bus.  Then, of course, I feel guilty.  I've got it so easy - I get to stay home with my kids.  I don't have to go out and work all day, then come home and try to fit in housework, dinner and quality time all in just a couple hours a day.  I don't have all the stresses my husband does, having the support of a family of 5 on his shoulders.  I may go insane when I haven't gotten to go to the bathroom by myself all day, or been able to finish a single thing without it taking 3 times as long as it should, and my only source of adult conversation may be the voices in my head, but would I really trade it for a world where I was gone all day and someone else was getting all the cuddles and smiles and laughter I get from these crazy little people?  I don't think so.

Well said! I wouldn't trade it for anything either. I do enjoy the times I get to go pee by myself though, ha! I guess it's the little things! And adult conversation is often overrated!

Good post! Not having kids of my own, I always find it hard to imagine how Moms manage to hold onto their sanity when the kids are young enough to be around the house all day. I would never have made it! And, yes, I think I'm having a bit of blog burnout, too. Happy Holidailies!

I hear ya! I work 2 days a week. I love it. It is the perfect balance for me. I really love going to work, having my lunch hour etc. Then I love being home the rest of the time. It is much harder being at home!

All you have to do is breathe, and try to stay in the moment.

I've missed seeing you around but I appreciate all that you've said.
