It's 11pm & I really should be sleeping seeing as I have to be back @ work @ 6:45am for my third 12-hour shift in a row.... but I cannot sleep because my mind is racing & all I cant think about is a the million & one things I have on my list of things to do.
I was gOOgLing around online & ran into this site so I joined & here I am venting. I wonder if this is how any of ya'll came across this! lol
I am so amazingly blessed. Seriously.
I have an amazing one-year-old who is a complete handful, but nevertheless, he is my little angel!
We live with my boyfriend who is also my son's father. We just moved in together right before our son was born & right before that, we both just graduated college. We have now both started our new careers & our new lives... in a new city.... with our new baby! It's been a year since this all began, but it's all STILL sinking in!
We live in the same town as my parents... who are divorced, but are both completely involved with helping out with babysitting & taking care of our little boy when we work. In fact, I was a stay @ home mom for 4 months. Since I started working, we have both worked full-time & have been fortunate enough to not have to pay for child care. Between all the grandparents, aunties, & godparents who chip in to help, we have been truly blessed.
YET.... I still have things to complain about. WHAT?! Imagine that! To some, it can't get better! I know there are single moms & other families out there who are not as fortunate..... & I truly admire you all. Seriously.... because I honestly have NO IDEA what I would do without my parents. I'm pretty sure I would have to quit my job, though haha because PAYING for childcare wouldn't even be worth it!
Anyways, I'm still stressed out because there is absolutely NOT ENOUGH HOURS IN THE DAY! It drives me absolutely INSANE that I can never catch up with my never-ending to-do list! How on EARTH do people have multiple children while working full-time also? I feel like I'm not there enough for my son when I'm at work, but when I'm home I have to to do house chores & errands... I just can't figure out the balance. Please HELP! I'm completely ALWAYS stressed out to the point where I am miserable all the time. I'm in a funk & I can't get out of it. If any of you have any advice for a new working mommy who is in a committed relationship with her baby daddy & is in the verge of a breakdown please help! I would really appreciate it! Thanks! (o:
