I Don't Know How She Does It

Have you seen the previews for SJP's new movie 'I Don't Know How She Does It'?

I haven't read the book (who has time for reading!?), but I'm dying to see the movie. Since becoming a mom 15 months ago, I have developed an even greater respect for moms everywhere - single, married, working or stay at home. I don't care what your situation is, being a mom is the hardest job around. Period.

I'm constantly debating in my head whether a mama can actually Have.It.All. I'm not so sure it's possible. I'm amazed by the blogger moms out there, who have a successful business and blog...AND keep up with the bills, kids, pets, socializing, cleaning, exercising, cooking, etc. Seriously, how do you gals do it!? Something's gotta give, right?!

For me, I've had to cut back on blogging and creating for the last month or so. And that's frustrating. I have a husband, a toddler, a full time job & a dog...and those come first. Not to mention, taking care of myself & my health. So, I want to know, moms...what's your secret???  Can we have it all? What things have you given up or put on the back burner?

I can't wait to see that too!! I think one of the best things I have learned with this whole blogging thing is to not let "comparison" steal your joy. You have a fabulous blog and an adorable business that is always there--- whenever you want. You are a busy girl so give yourself a break:) I go through days when I blog 6 post then weeks will past till I feel like writing. Just take it as it comes:) enjoy the ride;)

I love Tracy's comments! So true. And in that vain, I find that once you acknowledge that you can't do it all, you feel much better about yourself;).
