Excuse me while I continue to try and balance a bebe, work, life and this blog. Oh balance, the story of one's life is to learn how to balance it all. Family, work, school, friends, alone time, time with your pet; no matter how much time passes this will always be a struggle for me. I guess we are always a working progress.
One of the things I am trying to learn how to balance is my fur baby and my little Z. Aiden is the sweetest boy in the world but has been very stand-offish with me since we brought home bebe Rowe. When others hold her he quickly jumps on their laps and acts very jealous but when I hold her he stays away. To be super honest, at first I was so consumed with this Zoe that I didn't pay much attention to it but lately the little man has been acting out. Like peeing in the nursery, skipping meals and being attached at the hip to me (which, on two occasions meant me tripping and falling down the basement stairs). I feel terrible that he doesn't get as much love from mama, and am seriously working hard at paying attention to the both of them but it's hard...
I admitted this to my mom the over the weekend but she was quick to answer, "it's ok, you will eventually find your balance but every day will be different. Stop feeling guilty!". Oh that G word…. It's an evil one, my friends. Ha! So I am going with that, eventually my life will feel normal, well it will feel like my new normal and until then I will just try and quit feeling so guilty!
Any other new mama's out there feeling guilty about a pet or not enough tummy time or date nights? Jeez my list of what I feel guilty on seems to be growing…
Happy Monday my friends.
PS How cute are these pics of my babies? I love them.
