Parenting comes with lots of time constraints doesn’t it?
As a first time mom, I was surprised at how busy we were. Some of our full schedule was self-inflicted, true. But, a lot was unavoidable … you know normal life stuff. Then, we added the second baby. Our daughter started Kindergarten and extracurricular activities. Life has gotten so busy that we don’t usually have a free weekend.
As a stay at home mom, I have been overwhelmed by the amount of responsibilities. Even more so, I have (and sometimes still do) struggle with how little down time there is. I have lamented that I just can’t get everything done.
In your parenting adventure, have you ever struggled with time? There’s just not enough time in the day to get the house chores done, chase or entertain the kids, and meal plan.
Oh, did you want a night off?
If you don’t have time management strategies in place, you may have had difficulty finding that time. But, your time to unwind is just as important as everything else you schedule.
I’m with you! I’ve been a stay at home mom nearly 6 years and have had to adapt to new routines as I watch the days, weeks, and years pass by. Sometimes it’s a blur. And, I know how difficult it can be to fit everything in. Heck, I know how hard it can be to totally forget something was planned. Between doctors appointments, after school activities, and all the other things on your family’s schedule, it’s easy to forget to note another appointment. Or, maybe you’ve totally forgotten an appointment?
I’ll let you in on a secret. I have too! I’m always thankful for the reminder calls or emails from the doctor’s office. But, I go into a sort of panic mode. If I don’t have it on the calendar, I have to fit it in and move things around.
But, it doesn’t have to be so difficult. Nor does it need to induce anxiety.
