Crazy has a name..

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.

I will be praying that you get in a groove this week and things will all move smoothly. It really helps me to have a little calendar that fits in my purse so I always know what's going on. Once I write something down on paper, it really helps me relax and fell at ease because I know I'm no longer responsible for remembering brain is gone! :)

Do you have a crock pot? That's something that has helped me when I know I'll be rushing around at dinner time or when I will be gone. That way life goes on and if you have some good recipes that include sides in one pot, your family may not even realize you are least until it's time to do the dishes! :)

I'm sure you will be a super daycare running, family taxi drivin', activity attending, organized mom before you know it and will want more thing to do, hehe!!
