Delicate Balance…by Liimu

Why does it seem so hard to strike a balance of motherhood, work, exercise and time for myself? Since Max came along, I feel most days like all I want to do is snuggle him. Then there are other days where I have a burst of energy and I want to get back into exercising (I tried that, and now am back in pain…having to rest up again). Then there are days I’m wondering whether irons I have in the work fire are burning (and my wonderful clients tell me not to rush back, but to enjoy my maternity leave). So here I am, blogging while my daughter holds the baby and my other daughter asks if she can hold him next. All I really want to do is snuggle him. And since this time in our lives will be over in the blink of an eye, and this is our last child, I’m going to give in to that inclination as often as I can.
