Balancing on the edge of the Cliffs of Insanity
I'm realizing that I'm walking a fine line between good-crazy-busy and plain ol' insanity. Not sure where my days are going, only about 80% confident I am completing various non-parenthood-related tasks in a quality way.
But I *am* feeling thoroughly not-insane with my kids, which is new. They're both verbal-enough and reasonably-enough (though A-Train is going downhill on that score...thankfully I know it's temporary) that they can tell me what they need. AND they both express gratitude (even if it does sound like A-Train is saying "Spanx."). And they both want to snuggle and joke with me and talk to me.
They also both play on their own or together. At least sometimes. The Beast and I have had whole conversations! We've eaten warm meals together while the kids were around.
My family life feels so in balance. Can't have it all, but I sure do love what I've got.
