Family Balance?!

Here I am, up way to early in the morning because the little man woke up and asked for something to drink. He was, of course, asleep by the time I brought it to him. And, again of course, I couldn’t fall back asleep. I love my little man, but sometimes I think he is just planning some really big joke on me.

Today’s NaBloPoMo prompt is again appropriate to the day’s events: Making family time is important. How do you balance your children, relationship, and work life?

As the stay-at-home mom of a preschooler, I really don’t have any balance. Life is mostly about the little man: feeding, bathing, going for walks, teaching, playing games with, etc. If you read my other blog, you know that I still manage to do quite a bit of knitting and cross stitch, but a good portion of that is done at night, after he is in bed or while sitting with him at the computer.

As for other relationships? Well, my poor husband suffers. But at least we’ve been able to get away a few times. I remind him that one day the little man will grow up and  leave home, but he and I will always be together.
