I found it quite difficult in the beginning trying to balance home and work life but I'm slowly figuring out a routine (with the help of Aaron of course). We have typed up a schedule for Ashleigh and I have to write EVERYTHING down otherwise I forget appointments and dates.
Sorry to everyone out there who's birthday's I've missed the last couple of months - I have no real excuse except for being exhausted and not enough brain space left!!
I have felt incredible guilt the last few weeks - am I being a good enough mother, wife, neighbour, friend and worker?? I forget to make sure Ashleigh has her glasses at least one day a week, I have forgotten her "news time" twice now - I have visions of her getting up in front of her class with nothing to say and that tears me apart. I have forgotten about 3 doctors/specialists appointments, and so much more! Am I trying to do too much or am I just a scatter brain?
I feel guilty mostly about not being a good enough mother - especially to Ashleigh. It's her first year at school and I just haven't given her the attention she needs because I'm so exhausted at the end of the day or I'm thinking about stuff I need to do for work and shrug her off. I guess it's just going to take time to figure out the balance.
I'll leave you all on a more positive note with pictures of Lauren - check out those curls!!
Let's hope the wind doesn't change!
