I work full time outside of the house, write this blog, and attend events all while being a wife and mother. It's not easy!
As of the last few days, our little crib jumper has decided she only wants to sleep with us in our bed full time. But normally she goes down at 8pm with no problem. Once she is sleep I break out the lap top and turn on the TV so I can blog and tweet. I stay up until 12 or 1 am.
Peyton, the part-time sleeper wakes up at 3am (or 5am if we are lucky), requesting to get in the bed with us and some milk or juice. Sometimes she goes back to sleep and sometimes she is ready to start the day. She will talk, sing ABCs and Fresh Beat Band, and say Daadee about 400 times. We try to sleep through it. I usually get up for real at 6am.
I know everyone thinks I am out all the time. For a Mom, I do get out pretty often. I try to limit week night events to no more then once a week. Since we start our bedtime routine at 7:30, I try to head out around that time so she doesn't miss me. I feel like after she is in bed she won't miss me and I won't miss anytime with her.
The ugly part of me trying to "do it all" is that I let a lot of stuff go. I don't cook, then again I never have. I have managed to find easy things to make for Peyton
I am blessed that Mister stays with Peyton while I go out so we do not need outside help with our daughter.
So how do you do it all? Do you have any tips? What have you let go?
