When I started writing this blog (2+ years ago!), I had lofty goals of being a mother and a family with a baby. I wanted to continue DIY-ing things around my house, crafting, traveling, cooking, socializing, exercising, eating out and add to that learning how to parent and how to include or work around having kids amidst the above activities.
So, my goals of keeping up all of my hobbies, interests, friendships etc., have not fallen by the wayside. I'm just trying to be realistic about this season of my life. This is not a season of life that I have a ton of disposable time. There will be another season for that. The disposable time I do have, I need to choose wisely on what it is spent. Crafts take longer....weeks longer. Blogs remain drafts for longer...months longer. DIY projects remain to-do lists longer....years longer.
But we are living our life exactly the way we want to. With our kids. Especially being blessed to be home with them, they deserve the best of my time. All the time. Not that I don't need and take breaks, I do and I'm working on being better at that. In this season of life, my house won't look the exact way I want it to, project ideas will stay ideas, Pinterest is just some website I used to look at, and will someday again search for creative inspiration, and my kids will apparently put underpants on their head. But until a new season arrives, I don't feel guilty just living, and letting those me-projects brew in the back of my head, or sneak in here and there. Right now, it is a season for DIY parenting...and I'm all in.
