When Your Family Comes 2nd

The WAHM Rant

fotolia 32607840 Subscription XXL copy When Your Family Comes 2ndI keep saying this mantra:

 

“I’m doing this for the kids”

or

“I’m doing this so I can spend more time with the kids”

or

“I’m doing this so I won’t miss any of my kids’ special moments”

or

“There are bills to be paid. Hubby can’t work 24/7″

or

“I’m too smart to be sitting in front of the boob-tube eating oreos”

 

and also, in moments of frustration:

 

“I am really sucking at working from home”

and

“Where is that time I promised the kids?”

I mean seriously, trying to:

  1. chase tots,
  2. decipher teens,
  3. count calories,
  4. spend time with hubby,
  5. listen to my mom complain,
  6. build a new business
  7. cater to clients
  8. clean the house and part-time cook

all during the same time slot, can get pretty overwhelming. And the doubts, the doubts that that is at all possible, too many to count.

But lately, I’ve had support thrown at me, and I want to share with you those Divas (brilliant, supportive, caring women) who’ve given me pick-me-ups through the past 2 weeks. Continue reading
