johnna_mama The always lovely @melloui asked me to share one #fromthecuttingroomfloor - I just uploaded my photos to my computer but here's one of Cayden and I doing a little birthday party shopping at Target. Of course, red solo cups are a must for any party (even 4 year olds ) I tag @sulovebug if you want to play of course 3d

johnna_mama My girl @am0s asked me to post #onefromthecuttingroomfloor so here's a photo of Chloe from yesterday. All I wanted was a nice smiling picture of her but she just kept rubbing her eyes and laughing. Typical Chloe! She hates the camera and runs when I take my phone out Care to share a photo that didn't make it to IG @crystalrosee? 2w

johnna_mama Enjoying some iced coffee on this ridiculously hot day. It has been a rough couple of weeks over here including a metric ton of self reflection. Lately I've been feeling so burned out. Always taking care of my 2 kids plus 2 or 3 more everyday, and I can honestly say I never have time for myself. I have been dreading the day when I wake up and I haven't been able to find inspiration in the every day. I miss being creative and having the time to immerse myself in projects. I am second guessing if this is still what I want to do with my life. M and I have been talking about where we see our family in the next five years and whether or not homeschooling is a realistic option and researching possible local schools for Cayden. Things are changing, for the better I hope, and I'm looking forward to the next phase in our lives. Now I just need to figure out how to balance kids and marriage while also meeting my own needs. Sorry for the vague ramblings, friends! Just felt the urge to share what's been going on in our lives! 2w
  •   crystalrosee I feel you on this...I have been feeling burnt out as well here and there and it scares me a little because I don't want that to be a common feeling every day. I hope everything goes well with you though and it works out! You aren't alone! 2w
  •   johnna_mama @crystalrosee I always loved staying home with my kids but the older they get the harder it is to entertain them! And throwing other kids in the mix makes it 10x harder. Lately I've just been craving me time to get back to the things I've always loved to do. Raising babies takes a lot out of you! Thank you for the sweet words, you aren't alone in feeling this way either! 2w
  •   sulovebug I feel ya lady!! I'm always thinking "what the hell am I going to do with my life now!?!" We should plan a craft night! Or do a spa day. 2w
  •   johnna_mama @sulovebug I'm so down! We have so much to talk about! Let's plan it! 2w
  •   sulovebug Ok let's plan a night. Mike is in Chicago for two days next week. If you want to come to my house one of those nights. 2w
  •   mamainlalaland I can't imagine taking care of that many kids! 2 is hard enough. You need to give yourself more credit than you are though. You are doing something that very few people have the patience for! You are taking care of other peoples kids! I can't stand most peoples kids!! And you are with them all day. That, in and of itself, should be commended. Carving time out for yourself is hard. I have yet to figure out how to do it. I haven't had a haircut since November because I can't seem to find the time! But it's important to take care of yourself. Self care is good for the soul. And as for Cayden, I know you had your heart set on homeschooling and you feel strongly about it. I commend you for that, as well. But know that if you can't manage it, it's ok. He will be ok! The most important thing is that he has you. Going to school is great. But what he learns from you daily is the best gift you can give him. Academics aside, he has you as a teacher. Not a bad thing! Chin up girl. You got this! 2w
  •   johnna_mama @sulovebug sounds good! 2w
  •   johnna_mama @mamainlalaland thanks for the sweet comment, mama! I appreciate the words of encouragement! It is rough to care for other kids, you're right! My patience isn't what it used to be either. Realizing that this isn't what I want to do anymore and making changes. When Chloe is old enough to go into preschool I'll have to figure out what to do with myself! So weird! I am upset when I think about homeschooling, but at the end of the day, I'm not sure it's the right option for Cayden or myself anymore. And you're right. I can still support his education at home! We'll see what happens! It's a lot to take in and think about. Need to get my happy back! Here's to hoping we both get haircuts in the very near future because #ineedonetoo 2w
