Am I crazy?

Today was a crazy day.  Who am I kidding, every day in this house is a crazy day, but today had a little EXTRA crazy.  I love being a stay-at-home-mom and I love having my sewing business, but there are some days when I just feel like I've put a little too much on my plate and that I'm just a little crazy myself.  Today was definitely one of those days.  I found myself wondering why I even bother trying to have a business when I have children at home with me.  Maybe I should give up the dream of making something of myself (other than a mommy) and just accept that I have a full time job with no days off, no holidays, no vacation time... this is it.  I hear myself think these things and want to smack myself, but then again, that takes a lot of energy that I'm already lacking (hence the reason for these thoughts to begin with.)  Are we seeing a pattern forming?!  Ugh, I hate when I have these days.  I'd much rather stay with the days when I feel great, have energy, the kids are happy and play nice, and I'm inspired to create my items for my store!  That's not too much to ask, is it!?!?!?!  Ok, I've answered my own question... Yes, I AM crazy.

  1. Mandy, crazy is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Some days...being a Mommy is easier than others. On those days put the other stuff on hold...but don't give up!! You are a precious lady who LOVES being a Mom!!! You wouldn't trade that for anything in the world....I know that is true. So give yourself permission to take those days slower....breath easier and kiss those baby cheeks. They don't stay that way very long!
