I want to be able to do all. I want to spend time with my kids, have a clean house, actually get to shower every morning, or get a blog post up on time. But I didn't start learning until being a work-at-home mom of two under two that it is impossible to do it all.
I saw a quote recently that said, "You can do anything, but not everything." That really hit me hard. When you step back and look at all you want to be able to do, and know that you have to choose, it really helps you to prioritize.
Laying and talking with Sophie is way more important to me than those dishes that are piled up in the sink. Showering daily is so overrated 😂. Snuggling up and watching Peppa Pig with Noah is more important to me than the laundry.
Don't get me wrong. I know that as adults we have responsibilities. I know at some point I have to do laundry or we will all be naked 😑. And doing dishes is a necessity. But we just shouldn't get down on ourselves when we make something else a priority day to day.
I am terrible about being really hard on myself daily. I have been working on being nicer to myself and just trying to remember that I can do anything but not everything.
I got house straightened up last night after the little ones went to bed so today you'll find me snuggling 😍.
