Can I Do It All?

Hello Everyone, although I have every intention of posting on a regular basis, I find it harder and harder to do so.  With three little guys keeping me busy I barely have time to sit and eat a meal let alone blog.  Everyone one tells me that I should find time for myself, but what these same people fail to realize is that when I have some "time" I want  to sleep.  In any case here I am on a Sunday evening taking a few minutes to ask myself "Can I do it all?"  I am not sure.  Being a mother, a wife, a writer, a blogger, a nanny, a housekeeper, a chauffeur, a chef, a doctor and heavens knows what else takes up all of my time.  So I ask all of you...can it all be done?  If not, what gives?

I'm no expert, but I know Martin is gone a lot for work. Every time I see those boys, I always tell myself what a great job Lydia is doing. You have the most important job in your household. Stay strong and keep up the good work.

Don't do everything yourself. Some things can wait and some things you can enlist the help of your children - even if they are young. Children love to help, especially if you make it fun and give a lot of praise for a job well done. I'm not saying to make them do laundry and fix dinner, but they can help keep the house clean, set the table, help bring in groceries, etc. It builds confidence and it makes them feel like an important part of the family.
I have no doubt that you are a great mom. Just remember to fill up your tank - no one and nothing can run on empty. :)
