Friday's Lesson for the day...Balance

I started this blog with the intent of it being a tribute to my daughters. As I began writing each entry I realized how cool it will be when the girls have grown up and they can read this and know that not only did I love them immensely but that they also have a day-by-day synopsis of their lives.

As the entries rolled on and I visited other blogs I came across many awesome blog designs. Being a newbie at this, I used the basic design but I have come to see the error in my ways. I will be updating my template over the next few weeks to a design that more reflects my girls and I and the message I want to promote.

Ok so the important point is over the next few weeks... I have a hard time with illustrating patience and waiting. When I begin something, I like to dive right in and finish it. Now that we have the girls I can't just stop everything and research templates like I would like too. The girls' needs come first and I am happy with that. I don't want to miss anything humorous, challenging, loving, or off the wall nuts that they might do.

So my lesson today is about the balance of being mom and being me. Today while I blogged both girls sat in chairs next to me and colored. When mommy gets computer time, everyone gets an art project. Olivia loved the idea of playing "working" by mommy and made some wonderfully colorful pieces for Dave to take to work.. Ava snacked on the paper and watched the turtles swim. We all got to enjoy ourselves in different ways and be together. Balance. Balance. Balance.
