With the whole myriad of things I’ve been taking on…. having kids, cloth nappies, cooking, sewing, blogging, running a family day care… it’s crazy how I’m still managing to juggle it all and keep all the balls going.
Sometimes I wonder if I’ve now become one of those women we love to hate. But the truth is, behind that seemingly pristine looking front, is a huge mess of dropped balls all over the place.
Family meal at the kids table
So here is an honest reveal of the reality behind my shiny looking blog…
I now make my family live straight out laundry baskets to save time on folding clothes. I blame this inspiring article. As long as no one is
noticingmentioning the wrinkles, I think we’re good.
Our dining table is now gathering dust because we’ve started eating together at the kids table in the kitchen to save time on cleaning up. I figured it doesn’t matter where we eat, as long as we’re all together as a family.
I sometimes eat standing up in the kitchen and cook or wash dishes in between bites.
I served up spaghetti bolognaise three meals in a row last week.
I probably only shaved my legs just twice this entire past summer.
I realise that in an effort to keep the whole clockwork as a whole moving forward, I have to let a few balls drop here and there…. as long I keep holding on to the important ‘balls’ in my life.
Three important ‘balls’ in my life
Do some folks see you one of those women or mums others love to hate? Maybe you are just a really good juggler? How do you manage to keep all the balls up in the air? Or what balls have you decided to let drop and which ones have you decided to keep?
