Since the arrival of little # 4 I’m feeling busy and generally a little overwhelmed by everything I’ve got going on. My mind is overflowing with fun things I’d like to do with my kids, projects for the house, art I’d like to get down on paper/fabric. But, I barely get the dishwasher loaded most days, let alone sit down and do something with my kids for fun. I love data so I thought I’d prepare a little graphic representation of what I used to dream of before I was a parent and what I’m actually doing these days:
Of course, I wouldn’t trade any of these little buggers for anything, etc. etc., BUT right now it feels like I’m snowed in by the many mundane and even sucky tasks that parenting entails while, stuffed in every corner of my cluttered mind, the other things I’d like to do for fun and profit never see the light of day. But, enough complaining, I’m trying to claw my way back to the land of the living and this here blog post (acknowledge the problem) is my first little baby step..
