We celebrated with a combined family and friend party at our home for Maia’s birthday celebration. It was a full and busy week of preparing, planning and organizing. My next door neighbor made a beautiful sandcastle cake to go along with our beach theme and everyone was able to enjoy the outdoors and the pool.
I had this vision that I’d have so much time this summer to write and focus on my business but the truth of the matter is that caring for the girls and the household duties completely consume the hours I have in each day. I am grateful to be home with them and I would not want it any other way. But I have found myself feeling as if I am barely keeping my head above water more often than not. I’m not sure how I ran a daycare before!!! I guess we fill our time one way or another. I know I will look back on these years and not care about how clean my home was or if I blogged frequently enough. I will look back and hold on tightly to these memories of my daughters. I try to keep that in mind when I feel like I’m having trouble keeping up.
