I knew it existed.
I swore I wouldn’t be affected by it.
I was wrong.
That thing that everyone who has a blog inevitably talks about…..BALANCE.
And that one word? Yeah, it beat me to a pulp.
When the little eyes of my children peered over the top of my laptop followed by a little voice asking “why are you on the computer so much?” I knew I had failed at finding that balance.
So I did what I had to do.
I unplugged. Completely unplugged from all things social media related.
And I plugged back into motherhood.
I paid attention, played more, snuggled more, and even slept more.
But more importantly I thought more.
More about how to find that balance, and I’m not sure I have the answer.
But I do know this. I promise to write when I can; when it doesn’t interfere with family life and motherhood life. Because that to me is what life is all about. This space is where I share all the craziness of a life outnumbered by boys, but I cannot share those little tidbits of life if I’m not living that life.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m here; I’m more focused than ever before. But I also have a little bit more…dare I say, balance then I did when I started this blog almost a year ago.
And I can’t think of a better comeback than to be over at one of my favorite places in the whole wide world. I’m over at The Kir Corner today talking about one of my Proud Mommy Moments. Kir is amazing. I mean, A-MAZ-ING! Everything she writes is liquid gold. She oozes talent with every stroke of her keyboard and her personal strength is something that has me in awe every single time I read the stories of what she went through trying to conceive her adorable twin boys. Besides, she loves cupcakes…and shoes! I told you she was amazing!! I’m absolutely honored beyond belief to be over at her place and I’d love for you to join me.
