As I sit here plotting out my game plan for going to the eye dr. in the middle of nap time I am pondering this thought with the humblest of heart:


How do I keep the house clean, dishes done, floor clean, bathrooms clean, kitchen mopped, countertops wiped, bottles made, dinner made, beds made, grocery shopping and household goods shopping.

That's just running the house.

Then there's my baby boy: feed him, bathe him, entertain him, burp him, put him to sleep, love on him, educate him, help him thrive, repeat.

Then there is me: take a shower, wash my hair, maybe put on a little makeup, GET DRESSED, get sleep, EAT, drink water, etc.

So like I said, I'm really not bragging at all. Or even feeling sorry for myself AT ALL. I'm just-a-thinkin'. Women and men have been doing these very same things I'm doing for millions of years with so much less. So much less and so many less conveniences, blah-fuckity-blah.

I just don't know how I do it, how ANYONE does it, day after day, and yet I am. Surviving, thriving, excelling, doing more and more every day. It's tough work. Being a Mom that is. It doesn't matter if you're a stay at home Mom/Dad, working Mom/Dad....I mean MAN, it's just fucking amazing!

Andrea I have these same questions too.Life gets so busy,even without a child and with a child ,I don't even know where to start from.
I know it certainly must be challenging and very intimidating at times,and I feel that relaxing and taking a step back from the chaos would be a good way to calm yourself down.I am sure you also have fabulous days doing the same exact things on a typical day,but sometimes it just affects us.
If you perfect the art of juggling,then pass on that knowledge to me too :)
