I cut my blogging week short last week (not sure if anyone noticed but me...). I take full responsibility, but have to admit that a birthday party was in part to blame. Our weekend has been a string of parties that have been both fun and exhausting! Sometimes I just have to laugh about the things we must do as moms. Don't get me wrong, I'm always thrilled to celebrate life with friends and the joy kids have at birthday parties is fairly spectacular. But I'm sure you've gotten to Monday morning before and thought, "I could really use a couple of days off." I'm there.
You'll never get a badge, medal, or award for doing all of those mom things. You might not even get a thank you from your kids without a little prompting. But that's being a mom. So if you did the birthday party brigade this weekend or some other act of motherly love, let me remind you that you are a great mom. All we can do is our best. And to be totally honest with you, if you were the mom who said "no" to a few birthday parties for the sake of your sanity, good for you! I've been there too.
Was it a crazy weekend at your house? How do you keep things from getting out of control? Or better yet, tell us what you do to recover after a non-stop weekend.
