I have not posted anything for a while, and with good reason. Even though I am a mere 3 weeks into the Fall semester, I am feeling more than just a bit overwhelmed on most days. I am finding that this is definately more difficult to handle with 2 kids instead of 1, with an infant AND a toddler instead of just a toddler. Kyle has given up naps and replaced them with frustration. Kaleb is just to the point where he is getting into everything. While Kaleb still takes one or two naps per day, I still have to take care of dishes and dinner and everyday chores. I find myself staying up until midnight or 1 o'clock just to get things done for school and then having less patience and energy the next day. I know I have to find the balance, I know I can do it, but this is the first time I have truly had to struggle with managing it all.

I will now pull on my big-girl panties and just suck it up.

How can admitting I am not superwoman make me feel so much better?

I do not know.

But it does.


  1. Oh hun, you don't have to admit that you aren't superwoman! As far as I can tell, you are! What you do have to admit is that you need help, and having an understanding of what you can and can't handle right now does not make you less of a person. Hang in there, but don't push yourself to far, cause it is harder to bounce back after a while. Take stock of what is important to you and you WILL find a way!


  2. I hope that you are doing well. You do far more then most people and I think you are amazing for it! Hang in there...and as your other friend said, when you take stock of what is truly important, you will find a way! If you are led to, you will be led through it. You load will be lightened or your back made stronger.
