Seeking Balance

Balancing my time as I learn about daily livin' with two babes has been a challenge - one I have enjoyed mind you, but a challenge none the less. As the first week with my hub back at work comes to a close, I am discovering many new things, figuring out routines, and learning how to manage leaving my house :).

Most important for me right now is appreciating each moment. You know when you're in a moment where your wee one needs a snug, so there you are sitting with this amazing little miracle resting in your arms, and looming in the back of your mind is that great big pile of laundry, counter covered in dirty dishes, or baskets full of clothes needing to be put away?? It takes some effort to let those things go, and know that at some point they will get done - somehow.



  1. Wiser words were never spoken. Housework will ALWAYS be there, love on those wee ones while you can and remember to take care of you too ok? Sometimes it's easy to get caught up in everyone elses needs and not think of yourself. You must take care of you so you will be able to take care of them. Have a super weekend and now I am going back to my tax work.

  2. You are becoming very wise. I am so proud of you. You are a great mother. Beautiful picture.

  3. Jaime, your little guy is just adorable!! Thanks for sharing this, its so important to savor the moments with our wee ones. :)
