Having a double espresso at 4pm isn't such a great idea! It's been downhill since. And the saddest part is...today is Sunday. We have a super crazy week ahead of us. I'm going to need lots of prayer!
I finally admitted to myself that I need to let some things go. I am not in control. I will always be frustrated if I try to fufill my ideals of motherhood. God has already written this story. Instead of attempting to rewrite or direct the outcome, my role is to follow his direction. Honestly I don't even know how to begin to let go. For my sanity and the sanity of my family, I've got to figure it out soon!
This year, I've also realized that we have to make a conscience effort to avoid overscheduling. Before you know it each square on the calendar is filled with an obligation or two. The boys will alternate sports schedules, and we will only attend birthday parties for special friends. MC may get a pass on this one, because kindergartners usually invite the entire class until they establish who their best friends are. Experience is the real teacher!
