Busy Little Mommy

I just want to scream! I hate always being on the go or always having a list of things to do and from now till after the Holidays I will be on the go to get stuff done. :/ I think I just need a nap. How do other moms deal with a busy schedule, without going crazy? I am very organized and have a plan for my day by day activities, it still doesn't help me feel less stressed. What do you all do? I am Starting a New Job at a Hotel front Desk, I own my own Business, I started my own Blog, and I am starting School again after New Years. All with a 6 month old baby and I am a Single Mom (well with a BF who is deployed in Afghanistan)...Did I bite off more than I can chew?! ​

    I am not an organized person. I just take life by the horns and go day to day. I don't know if this helps, but one thing I remember is that if I don't get it done today, then there is always tomorrow. Cherish your little one, and the pieces will fall into place..

      Oh Brittney, I wish I could give you a cup of hot sweet tea now)
      You definetly is biting more than you should... But if you need it all... so keep going, everything is possible with belief!
      But please, dont try to do all this stuff perfect - you are mom, you should be happy, not perfect).

        Oh man.. YES, we all stress out. I am stressing just sorting out life WITH a baby come 2014.. but we all have our life issues.. and somehow we make them work! I will note.. if something is so stressful and toxic.. you should nix it. I did that recently and let that amazing barre studio come into my life.. it's amazing how balancing things properly can really make ALL the difference.. even being busy! I work from home, have many clients, run my own website/company, work at the studio 4 days a week, take classes daily... you can do it.. it can work.. just make sure there is a gentle balance!

        All that will slow down for you though after the baby right? and the most stressful is something I cant change, He wont be home from Deployment till February. :/ Then most of my stress will be gone and I will have more of a balance. I wanted to just stay home and not work, but I think two days is good for me to get out of the house, and good for my son. He is getting really clingy and I cant even leave the room or put him down. I don't want him to be one of those kids come the first day he has to go to preschool. Plus, everyone gets stressed with the Holidays coming up. Oh how we all love that family time! :) lol

          I agree with the others. I'll also add do what's important and necessary and let the unimportant and unnecessary go, if that's what will make you less stressed and happier.

          I think there's time enough for your son to learn to live without you. He's young and it's natural for him to be attached to you and experience a separation anxiety. It's even natural on the first day of preschool and kindergarten but that doesn't mean that's what is best for your child.
