i really haven’t thought about the tax thing anymore. oh well.
just wanted to post that i have been feeling very inadequate as a wife and even a mother sometimes. i feel if i’m not spending almost all my time with jeremiah – teaching him new things, talking to him, etc, that i’m not being a good mother…at least not the mother i wanted to be to him. but if i do that one day, i feel guilty that nothing else is getting done. i need to find an even balance between mothering, housework and computer time. it’s also hard because my grampa is getting weaker and weaker, so i am helping him ALL the time now. it’s almost like i have two kids. i don’t mean to be disrespectful to him, because i love him a lot. it’s just he’s actually MORE work than jeremiah is sometimes. very draining. when jeremiah is asleep is usually the only time i have to work on here, or work on his scrapbook, and if grampa sees me doing anything other than holding the baby, he assumes i’m not doing anything important. 🙁
please pray for me. i’m trying not to let it get to me, but i’m really stressing. and jerry does so much, with work, and helping grampa out even more, that i feel badly in putting any more work on him at home.
hugs and blessings!

    {{hugs}} Mothering is such hard work, and it’s tricky to find that balance. Don’t stress too much – you’re a great mom! What a strong and loving person you are to take care of your grandpa in addition to your immediate family. You’re in my prayers, as always…and remember “I am weak but He is strong.” 😉

    Of course no one expects you to be super mom. Just keep on loving your family.

    I am sorry, though, that you are feeling overloaded. Don’t know what to say. I be praying for you and your family.

    :snoopy:Hi Jenn 🙂
    Balancing mothering and being a sahw is hard to do. Even after 3.5 years I am constantly struggling on getting the house clean or playing and teaching Faith. I always opted for teaching Faith and giving my all to her as I remember my Mom always having to have a spotless house and letting us be. It has paid off as Faith is very well adjusted and very smart for a 3.5 year old. People always tell us they thought she was over 5 when they meet her. The communication and interation you give Jeremiah will pay off ten fold in a bit. But remember to try and take some time to relax in the tub or read a chapter or two of a book. IF MOMMY AIN’T HAPPY NOBODY IS HAPPY!! I love you and will pray for you :):woodstock:

    You and your family are definitely in my prayers…Taking care of yourself IS taking care of them. When a plane is going down remember they always tell the mom to put on HER oxygen mask first…

    You know what hun…I am about to have my fourth child and I still haven’t found the perfect balance between motherhood, being the best wife, and finding time for myself. It is the hardest job in the world. Do your best and do what makes you happy every night when you lay down to sleep. It will all come together. Every day is a new day. What you miss today you can look forward to for tomorrow 🙂
    Love ya!!

    Hang in there Jen, you are loved!

    You poor thing. That is so awful. I will be praying for you. I know how you feel about the whole “he figures you aren’t doing anything important” thing. Everyday, if Chad is not at work, his parent’s are telling him to do things. We can’t even spend any quality time together here- if they see us, they are demanding that he do stuff. And it makes me really mad because they aren’t even thinking about the fact that I won’t see him for over a month after he leaves for basic. Anyway- we will both get through it with God! 🙂 Love ya girl!

    Oh hunny….it is normal to feel like this when you have a little one around. Please….don’t be to hard on yourself. You are being the best mommy I have ever seen. Happy Early Mother’s Day sweetums! ~*HUGGIES*~
