Balancing Act

 

One of these days, I am going to sit down and write a blog about how I have it all figured out. I will know exactly what to do, I will have all the answers, my ducks will all be in a row. My life will be together. I will know what direction I want my life to go in and it will be a GREAT direction. I will have meal plans, my kids will eat unprocessed additive free food for every meal. We will never be late for anything. I wont be sitting down to blog on the night I'm actually meant to post a blog, no, I will have months worth of blogs all ready to go at a moments notice so that I can sit and play with my kids on an afternoon while my pre-planned dinner bubbles away in the crock pot.

Until then, you will just get to see these sorts of posts. From an average mum. Just trying to juggle the guilt of a mum/work balancing act.

Trying not to take on board all the "It's your fault mum" comments I have heard over the past week.

Or think about the school bag I still havn't bought for one of my children even though first term is almost finished. (Note: He does have a bag. Its just very, very, very old and I've promised to take him to the city for a new one since the start of school. My bad.)

Or the fact that I still havn't got my daughters book that she needs to read for English even though they have meant to have started reading it already.

Or that I can't actually remember the last time I  took my little kids to a park or for an outing or bike ride (we got a bike for our youngest for Christmas, literally have not taken her out on it! Christmas people!)

On an up note I did get a crock pot meal on today. So there's that.

Oh, and my kids still love me despite all of my failures. How great are kids. Maybe I could learn something from them in all this.
