Great post, Trina. You're right about motherhood being a busy job! Throw in 40h of paid work too and it can be really really stressful. I've found the trick is to make sure it's not always about the kids/hubby/work ... that sometimes it needs to be about YOU. I guess you know that as well, and that's why you make sure you have "me time" each week. It truly is a mother's sanity!
Love all the photos!!


LOL I had to laugh as only this morning someone told me they thought I was a wonderful mum, how well I cope etc.... and I said thanks but no more then most mums!


Me time is such a necessity in life! I would be one huge cot-case if I didn't get some of it. Some days it might be just the time spent in the shower but at least everyone knows I'm NOT to be disturbed. That's when I get the day's plans straight in my head lol.


And all that by 9am!! As my friend says - just breathe. With all 3 of mine at school during the day - that is my "me" time and I love it. The peace and quiet is just the best because I know that once 3pm hits then its all on again until the next day.


Phew, I'm tired just READING that !


What a cool post! Yes we tend to be hard on ourselves as Mum's... I even told one of my girls the other day... I'm doing my best and besides I'm the only Mum you've got!!!
