After Christmas, New Year's and Las Vegas it's time for a return to reality. Life as we know it.
M, W, & F is pre-school in the afternoons. W is respite and Ladies Group, T & R afternoons our SNA (special needs assistant) is in the home to assist in keeping the pre-school learning momentum, R morning is gymnastics for both boy and in between all this there are OT visits, psych visits, doctors appointments, playdates (?), naps (?), housekeeping (?), physical activity for all of us (?)......how do you do it?
I feel we are lacking. Lacking in momentum, time and regular life. Was life really meant to be so scheduled? I guess so. I chose this in an attempt to help my child/ren. And I'm sure some of it really is but it feels like we're missing out on "regular life".....playdates, free play outdoors, home days, etc.
Have we become too specialized?
When will I get organized and keep a tidy home so that I can just play with my boys instead of constantly telling them..."Wait...Mommy's cleaning the kitchen,....Wait, Mommy's making dinner....Wait, Mommy's doing laundry....or Wait, Mommy needs to lay down cause she has a rockin' headache..."
And ya know....with all this "Wait" due to cleaning/tidying....my house is still a disorganized disaster! What's with that!
Any suggestions? I need help!
