So what's the solution???
Give up the kinder committee?
Don't go out to dinner with my girlfriends?
Don't catch up with family?
Spend less time playing with my children?
Ban the sewing machine and computer for a while??
While it might be that I should do the last item to an extent I feel that these two things are a bit of a lifeline for the stay-at-home mum.
Creatively I would feel a bit lost without my little chance to 'make' something each day.
And the online community has afforded me the chance to make valuable and solid connections with so many really wonderful people, many of whom are also parents, making the same daily decisions and facing the same challenges that I find myself making.
So I don't want to lose that.
Instead I am choosing to take that large bite and chew like mad!
How do you it it all in your day?
