Stop. Take a breath.

Last week I found that I had to keep telling myself this. From a quick trip to the beach that proved to be a lot of work (though loaded with fun) vs. my old, relaxing beach trips pre-baby. And then on to a packed week full of broadcast appearances, 4th of July festivities, trip to Austin, sick kid and so much more…I have really been feeling like I can’t catch my breath (or sleep).

Since becoming a mother I’ve really learned the importance of breathing (even though I sometimes forget). I’m struggling with deciding where to compromise right now. I thought I would finally get the hang of this as Luke got older. I want to be that awesome mom for Luke and try to plan lots of activities for him but then I really enjoy my work and don’t want to give up anything there. And as I run around like a crazy person, I’m constantly praying that I’m making the right choices. Again I tell myself as I type…stop…take a breath.

To see the commercials I just filmed click here for Jumping for Joy and here for Inflatable Wonderland.

    The dilemma that all mother’s who work and have children face….constantly being torn between the two. There is no one RIGHT answer. You continually ask God to guide you in all your decisions and with faith go forward; he will guide you.
