Sometimes I Don’t Have it in Me

Some days I just don’t have it in me to be a mom and a blogger, and to be all honest being a mom comes first. There are those days that I am able to sit and write and promote on social media for hours while the kids play around me and they take long naps so I can focus on my blogs, blogging-lifebut then there are days that at first sign of the computer opening they start the whining and the clinging to my side.

I know to be what they call, a “successful blogger” you need to dedicate ALL YOUR TIME to blogging all day long, but I can’t, I can’t because I care about my kids too much! Do I wish I could pull all-nighters every night to get it all done? Of course, but that’s not reality.

Between kids, church callings,  being a good wife, and a blogger, something always has to give. And it usually is my blog.

So On the Days You Visit

So you know those days when you think to yourself, “I’m going to go read my favorite blog, Confessions of Parenting (wink, wink)” and you don’t see a new post, just know that life is happening and occupying a little more of my time than normal, but don’t worry I will always be back…

So on those days that I don’t have it me to answer your comments or respond to your questions, know that I read each and every one of them! Please know that I love hearing from you. You are all the reason that I keep writing. I continue to write my blog for all of you! Know that I share the inner workings of our crazy family life to hopefully make a difference in yours. So, Thank You for always being there for me, even on those days that I don’t have it in me because I am busy being a mom to my kids who really need me that day!

  1. Um sis! This right here…YAAAAASSSS🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾 This is totally where I am this week. My daughter just needed mommy time and She’s who I chose over my blog. It’s hard because you want so badly to be successful for them ya know, and you work so hard to build your blog and glorify God but some days and for me, some weeks, I just can’t. I just have to be..ya know. Be a wife and spend time with the hubby. And talk to him about work without my back being towards him while I get this last post out. Or sit and cuddle with my LO while watching Moana for the millionth time rather than pinning posts or even responding to comments. Family must always come first in my mind and so I’m still trying to find the balance. I really appreciate your transparency and this post!!!!
