Speaking of the pressure to be supermom, my friend Tiffany, wrote a good post about that on her 2nd day of the challenge, 31 Days of Letting Go: Day 2!
Here are my daily schedules for this week so far. I, actually, followed it today! (Except that I didn't wake up at 7, oops! Not going to tell you what time I DID wake-up, but I'll just say that I didn't start working until 10:30...)
|I usually ignore that "Cleaning Goal" part! Ha!|
I struggle with trying to do it all, be it all, for everyone. I'm always falling short. Supermom syndrome. How DO they do it?? However, I usually feel better about myself if I follow my schedules and get SOME things done around here. Not that I get to feel like that often.
Having to schedule play time, is not a GREAT moment for a mom, but if I didn't put it on the schedule, it probably wouldn't happen at all. Emma told me the other day that I NEVER play with her. Talk about a knife to the heart. She, also, said that I never smile and I'm always mad. I wish I could just go with the flow and play when she asks and throw my schedules out the window. But I, also, know that, then, nothing would get done, including WORK.
So how to balance is the big question. Working from home is the best of both worlds, but I still can't master it. Anyone have any solutions on how to balance everything? How to be a supermom?
