my mini blogger :)
The first few weeks, maybe even months, after Mia was born I was understandably overwhelmed with... life. I had a harder time adjusting to motherhood than I was expecting (I didn't realize how much sleep deprivation, a healing body and nursing would take out of me, aside from figuring out life with a newborn)! I was kind of distraught (I blame it on the sleep deprivation) because I thought I'd never be able to stay awake through a TV show, let alone a movie, ever again (ha ha), and I just knew that blogging was to be a thing of the past... I didn't know how to juggle it all! But blogging meant so much to me! It was (is) my way of documenting our lives, and I have made some of the most incredible friendships because of my little corner of the internet. I was so sad to think of losing all the connections I'd made...
Luckily I adjusted, just like everyone else does, and I continued blogging ;) I've made even more amazing friendships and I continue to be inspired and uplifted by you amazing bloggers! The support we provide each other is just the best! But it is still an adjustment for me to find the time to blog. As Mia has grown, became mobile, grew out of multiple naps, etc, I've had to change my blogging strategies. As of late, I have to wake up at the crack of dawn to get my blog stalking in. I catch up on my blog reading before Mia wakes for the day, then I do my best to fit in some blogging during Mia's nap. Depending on how much house work, hair and make up, etc I need to accomplish before she wakes, I can pound out my next blog post (I'm not good with writing up several posts ahead of time) and catch up on more reading.
Some days I just can't keep up with everything, so blogging is one of the first things to go. Being a mom and wife are #1 on my priority list and it needs to stay that way. So even though I'm not always able to read/comment on blogs each day, it's something I love to do and will make up for it on the days that I do have the time! My little corner of the internet has brought so much good into my life... there's not even the slightest chance I'm willing to let myself get too busy to let that go :)
