As a mom? What have you encountered that you had to work through? What has been easiest for you?
Being a SAHM isn't easy, there are some days where you are just tired of doing the same stuff every single day. It's okay we all get there :) I know today is my lazy day, I do not want to do anything...blah, it's just one of those days :(
Hmmm.. Its probably balancing all my responsibilities. Which shouldn't be hard. I'm a SAHM. Now that school started I'm hoping to find a better routine that works for the kids. Some days I just feel like I get nothing accomplished that I want to.
Right! That is definitely a huge challenge, it's hard when you expect more from them, i've done before
For me the challenge is remembering that my kids are just that- kids. They're not mini adults capable of reasoning or understanding on every single thing I say or do. The easiest thing has been letting go of doubts about my ability to care for another person. I never wanted children because I didn't think I would be a very good mom. While I do still have the occasional doubt, I wouldn't give up my babies for anything. They're the best thing in my life. :)
My biggest challenge has been dealing with the guilt I'm constantly feeling! First it was because I had PPD, then because I felt like I wasn't stimlulating ds enough doing fun things everyday, then because my babies are close in age so I worry they're not getting enough one on one time....gah the mommy guilt never ends, lol!
Oh wow! That must be hard, but i'm glad that you have a stronger stomach. I hate the stomach flu!
As a mom my most recent challenge is trying to keep my patience while trying help my 12 year old learn how to handle pms. I used to have a hard time dealing with clean up when all three of my girls come down with the stomach flu but over the years I've managed to develop a stronger stomach than what I started out with. Easy for me seems to be the sleep deprivation that goes with being a parent.

Not getting enough sleep. I love sleep.
