I have always LOVED to be busy. When I was in both high school and college, my calendar would be filled with every activity under the sun: from cheerleading, to scholar bowl, drama club, volunteer work, to giving campus tours–you name it. And in my professional life, I’ve still kept my calendar quite full. Of course, my career itself is pretty demanding at times. But to keep my busy lifestyle in check, I’ve stayed involved in church, community volunteer work, and have added in the responsibilities of being a wife: cooking, cleaning and spending time with my best friend of a husband, Floyd.
But of course, as you might expect– mommy-hood has thrown in a whole new set of responsibilities. I wake up earlier in the mornings so I can get in two feedings with Drake before I have to take him to daycare. And in addition to getting myself ready and feeding the dog, I have to get Drake diaper changed and dressed, too.
I find myself coming home from a long day’s work and just wanting to cuddle my little guy. It makes it hard to *want to cook dinner or exercise off those pregnancy pounds! It’s a more difficult balancing act, but a rewarding one to say the least. Every time Drake smiles or giggles it is so thrilling. So I’ll just keep piling things onto my full work load, and love every busy moment even more.
