Specifically, the struggle of being a work-at-home mom. Oh, I know I don’t have to keep specific office hours or anything, but sometimes I wonder if that would make it easier. There is a constant balancing act, an ongoing struggle, over whether I should write, play with my son, or do housework. Any one of those things has the potential to, if I let it, create guilt over the other things I’m neglecting.
I’m learning–I’m working on it–and in the meantime, I enjoy commiserating with other ladies who get it. Which is why I absolutely love a blog I discovered over the weekend, Story of This Life, by Esther Anderson. You might recognize her from her latest videos.
I so get all of these–Why Moms get NOTHING DONE…When Toddlers Interrupt…Why Co-sleeping is No-sleeping… and I’m happy to see another mom who gets it and adds healthy doses of humor, thoughtfulness, and Scripture into the mix. So, basically, go check out the videos of hers that I linked to, because they illustrate perfectly what I’m trying to say here. 🙂
