Rinse and repeat.

Ever thought being a working mom (or a non-working mom) is easy? It’s not. Every second of every day is spent doing something for someone else. If you’re not okay with being absolutely and completely selfless…well, being a mama (or dada) probably isn’t for you.

But I’m going to tell you something that is straight from the bottom of my heart – and totally, completely truth: it’s TOTALLY worth it.

    So so true! I just wrote today about my “work-life” balance. I have a 3 year old at home so I’m up early and up late… like now. Just finally getting that “me” time and am sitting here writing this! Ah BUT drinking a nice glass of moscato so all is good! Love the post!

    My favorite part of this post is … clean up the playroom (formerly the living room). It’s funny ’cause it’s true.

      LOL SO TRUE. I’m thinking about turning our guest bedroom into a play room now, though. We’re actually running out of room in the living room!
