on being a Mom

Not only becoming a new mother but uprooting our lives to move across the country has been a lot.

More than I could handle and a lot of things took a back burner so that I could have every moment possible with our new little family.

Inevitably with becoming a working mother, a creative mother, an anything mother, ...
there is mom guilt and this quote rang true when I read it the other day over on The Ma Books blog.

Along these same lines is this post, which really just says it all. About the laundry, the play time, the guilt.

Finally after 3 months I feel like we are getting into a routine now that we are back here in Southern California.
And I am happy to be finding time to come back to this space.
