I decided to start blogging about Jordan from the moment I found out I was pregnant. Jordan was born with a little arm that didn't grow like most babies. Her left arm stopped just above the elbow. Now I'm committed to making sure Jordan gets everything out of life. We feel blessed to be the parents of a very special little girl.


How much is too much

I've hit the classic working mom hump. My husband has decided that I'm not doing enough at home and too much at work. What is the right balance? How important is our housework compared to the time I spend with the children?

My priorities are my kids, my family and my job over housework. Apparently I have to drop some work items and place more importance on the housework.

I'll be honest. I don't know what I'm going to drop. But clearly I'm going to have to drop something.

Hang in there, hon. I totally know how you feel. When I was struggling with the same thing, my mother-in-law who never worked outside the home said to me, "I wish I spent more time with my kids and less time on keeping my house so clean." Yeah, you don't want to live in filth or anything, but when your kids are all grown up, you're not going to remember having to step over a couple of toys on the way to pick them up.
