And it's C-i-N-d-i
I may be losing it, ya'll.
I actually got everyone dressed, hair combed & all, then rushed up to the school (to get a good parking spot, of course) for Brinley's Open House only to be greeted with a completely empty parking lot because I was a day early!
As many of you know I've been lucky enough to start my own childcare business from home. It's really a blessing to be with my own kiddos and also do my part to support the family.
It just so happens that this is the first week of soccer (with practice @5:30 two nights a week) and it's my first week with a full house of kids (attending 3 different schools) and then there's that darn Open House thrown in to push me over the edge, lol!
I'm so afraid of dropping a ball, whether it be the mom ball, housekeeper ball, wife ball, taxi ball or childcare provider ball...that I'm wound up tight this week.
This is not me - I am not used to a strict daily schedule. I do not make out menus weeks in advance.
But I am learning and hopefully I will find my groove.
Luckily, I have the best family!!
My dear husband has granted me a reprieve from dinner this week, because honestly I don't know how I would have time to make it anyway and be at the soccer field by 5:30. I could seriously get used to that.
My children have been awesome! Opening their homes, rooms, toys & mealtimes to virtual strangers. I am truly proud of them.
I heard a wonderful analogy this week that was something like this:
Life is like the tango. You are dancing along but you have to pay close attention to the music and be ready to pivot & head in a new direction when needed.
This is me, crazy mom, pivoting.
