I sooooooo get this right now. Mr Small has been horribly feverish off and on the last couple of days. I have so much work to catch up on but haven't been able to. He has been my focus. The opportunities will be there next week, but my little boy? he's where I need to be right now.Thank you for saying what my sleep deprived brain has been struggling with explaining today. x
So very true. I think we should all have this post pinned to our computer screens! x
This is so beautiful! I'm a lot like you in the way I want to do everything and want it all done now. When really all along its the little person/people in front of us who need the most attention.Enjoy those lovely cuddles x
We try to do so much. I've just accepted two awesome opportunities this week and now I'm wondering if I can actually commit enough time to them to be successful or not. I'm not interested in doing a half-assed job and the people I'll be working with definitely don't want that either. After reading this I think I'm going to take a step back, breathe, play with my bubba and chill.Thanks Dr Megan!
They are so innocnet, so trusting and need us so much. It's really good to stop sometimes and remember where our real responsibilities lie :-)xxxCate
So true Megan. Back burner still cooks. xx
So true. I just posted something very similar. It's easy to start singing along to someone else's tune, when really what you need to do is whistle your own.
Oh yes.... sometimes I forget that the whole Mum gig is important. Really important. Right now important. And that I can wait a little while to try everything else I want to try because they are only little for such a short time....
Very true. Thanks for the reminder. Now I'd better close my Google Reader and concentrate on tasks that need to be done, one at a time, so that when kids wake up I am ready and I am there for them.
I know that feeling! But then, they also say that if you need something done, to ask a busy person. I think the key is finding a balance - easier said than done!
I hear you loud and clear, and I'm SO with you on this one. I feel like at AusBlogCon I got to glimpse the writing/blogging career I hope to have - but it's not time yet because the kids still need me to be Mummy, not SquiggleMum.
Gorgeous. And so true.
YES this is something that I should be reminding myself of more often. Its the kids that are my focus and what I should be doing well. Thank you for the timely reminder...I think it will help me to make some much needed decision.
