I was chatting with Natali about how Motherhood is sometimes challenging (really a balancing act) when trying to juggle so many other aspects of life. I've had a lot going on lately and I've been working hard to try to not let anything fall through the cracks. Things that would have never happened in my "former life."
I was actually saddened when I thought I had forgotten to write up this week's giveaway. As I explained to Nat, I take so much pride in not missing a beat. At least trying to anyway. It frustrates me that I can't remember certain things (so I write everything down). It annoys me that it takes me longer to get things done -- my "to do" list often takes a full week to complete and sometimes two. And I hate being late. Alas... I am adjusting to this new life and I am a much better person for it! At least I know one thing. No matter what falls though the cracks, nothing is more important to me than being on top of my A-game as a Mother.
During our convo (over email mind you) Natali said, "Being a mommy has made me humble myself A LOT when things fall through the cracks that I know that I NEVER would have let happen in my "former life." It happens! But it is kind of good to be humbled in that way. I see how less perfect people live. HA!"
And this made me smile...
