Find Your Peace of Mind as a Parent

Everyone can appreciate the virtues of being a parent. The joy and the sense of fulfillment your children can give you day after day is unimaginable. But make no mistake, it is a tolling process and one of the first things you lose after becoming a parent is your peace of mind.

Children demand your attention every moment of the day when you’re at home, and before you know it you’ll consider yourself lucky when you have to stay an extra hour at work. There’s no need to feel guilty, everyone felt it, although few admit it.

Whether you have a crying baby or an over chatty toddler your mind will struggle to find a quiet moment to organize your thoughts. Then when the little adorable devils go to sleep or are off to the grandparents you’re often tempted to immediately burden your brain with another input to process, whether that comes through your smartphone or a computer screen, but doing that you’re not giving your mind a chance to calm down.

Children at Major Events, Think Twice

Children can be adorable, and they can also seem part tazmanian devil. With a big family like mine (5 kids all younger than 14), I usually will think long and hard before I decide to bring all my children to important events. While I love them all dearly, sometimes, they can be completely unpredictable and can be a nuisance to those around me. This was the case this last Saturday at my best girl’s wedding.

I was given the blessed opportunity to be a bridesmaid by a friend of mine for her wedding. This was one of those times where I wish I had hired a force of nannies to take care of my children. The bride just sent me a quite embarrassing picture the wedding photographer took of my youngest girl who escaped the clutches of my husband and wanted to say hi to mommy during the ceremony.  Continue reading “Children at Major Events, Think Twice”

How To Find Free Time As A Busy Parent

Nature has a way into everything and she sure has her way about helping new parents adjust. When you bring your newborn child home it sleeps almost the whole time, and that means that the changes in your way of life are not drastic and you still have some time for yourself.

I feel really sorry for these parents that have to wait until one in the morning for their children to go to sleep. Or those whose children wake up in the middle of the night hungry for milk.
