Over at Mommin It Up, an awesome blog, might I add, they have posted something that could have come right out of my mouth. It is EXACTLY how I feel as far as being a mom, and still trying to hit my stride. I was always such a STUDENT, and a mostly straight A student at that. I loved the satisfaction of getting that A. Unfortunately, in mommyhood, there is no report card so to speak…I don’t get that constant reassurance of an A to make me feel like I am doing a good job. I am left to simply dangle and wonder if I am totally screwing my kids up for life. I have yet to strike a balance between spending too much time playing with them and giving them 100% of my attention and not enough time doing so. I have a constant struggle within myself to live up to these likely unrealistic expectations I have of myself as far as being a mommy, wife, homemaker, and even being ME. Anyway, check out this post here.
