It's all about balance

There is still time to join in the ABC Photo Fun Challenge this week. I'll leave the linky up until Tuesday night. So post your "A" pictures. And start thinking of "B" pictures for next week.

Balance is something I find myself talking about often. Sometimes I'm talking about balancing time between Blake and Colby. Sometimes it's between me time and them time. Sometimes it's trying to get things done in the house and playing with the boys. But, it all comes down to balance.

I have a pretty good sense of balance. I can be a klutz, but for the most part I've got a good sense of balance. I really noticed it the few times I tried yoga, which is a fun but the class is at the time I pick Blake up from school.

I worry about serving the boys a balanced diet, even if the balance is over a week and not necessarily over the day.

But so many worries I have, and I'm sure other mothers do too, has to deal with this need for balance. When I feel life is in some semblance of balance I feel like I'm doing the right thing, but when it is out of balance I feel like I'm failing something in some way. I know that isn't the right way to view life and the world, but there it is for all to see. I need balance to feel... whole.

Hope you find the right balance you need to get through your day.



  1. After reading your blog for a while now, I've always thought of you as being very balanced! Though I think most moms feel out of balance sometimes. For me, it's more accepting that I can't do it all or be the "perfect" mother and then being OK with that. But I always want to do better. :)

  2. I think everyone struggles with balance now and then. I always have to remind myself daily about balance!
