What Happened Was...

See, I've come over here several times this month to get back on the blogging bandwagon and each time I was either interrupted or unmotivated. I want to be sure that when I am with my kids that I am giving them my attention. They require it for a full 13 hours a day! I know, I don't have to be in their face the entire day...but my reality is, I do.

In a normal day, when the husband is at work for 3 or 4 days and it's just me I don't have the luxury of letting the kids play together while I sip on some coffee and update the blog. Instead I'm sipping my coffee and playing referee. Or trying to keep the kids entertained and at the same time educated. There are days when I feel guilty because I so want Teagan to be enthralled by the TV. Just so I can take a breath and get through the 2nd half of the day. I just want 5 minutes where I can hear myself think without a little person invading those thoughts and asking why for the thousandth time.

And so the blogging has taken a backseat. I applaud those moms that can crank out entertaining, witty, funny post daily. I seriously thought I wanted to be that way too. But the reality is I want to be a good mom first and a blogger second. I don't want to look back at the time I've had with my kids and regret not being in the moment.

So that's where I am. Anyone still with me?
