How Do You Manage Your Time as a Work-At-Home-Mom?

I have been overwhelmed by my life lately. I’m not sure if it’s PPD lingering or if it’s overcommitment or a combination, but I am struggling with my new role as a full-time work-at-home-mom of two.

Every day is an adventure. I am not alone. Other people’s kids come up with crazy things, too. I bet Daddy has some big ones. {It is exactly what you think.} Are you KIDDING me?! It’s like we’re on a date! You were fat. And I kicked you in the tummy. {OH MY. This one had me rolling.} Mom. You know those first people that God made? The … Read more
