Are you too busy for your family?

I am overwhelmed of how I spent my day doing a lot of things but not satisfied of the things I've accomplished in 1 day because I know that tomorrow there'll be more stuff to do and less time for family. Sounds familiar? The list of chores keeps going on and on. It's unbelievable! As what my friends said, household chores are unending especially if you have a baby which I totally agree. I guess I can't be the superwoman which I thought I was. (nangarap ng gising) I'd rather be a supermom and super wife. As we all know, TV is good but it's not good for you for health reasons and I think you heard that over and over again but then we sometimes spend a lot of time sitting in front of the TV or the computer. I was thinking that this is a good reason to abstain for lent. So now I try not to watch too much TV and even limit Claira for watching her DVD's so we can move around and do something else. In replacement to that I turn ON the radio to my favorite station that plays old and new songs. This way I can do something while listening to music, sing if I like the song, dance if I like to dance, play with Claira and sometimes carry her, hold her right hand with my left hand and dance as if she's my partner. And you know what? It felt so good that I was able to make my baby smile. She loved it! Soon my baby doesn't need mommy's time and attention anymore. It would be sad to look back knowing that baby's grow so fast and we can't turn back the time even if we desperately want to.

Those who love deeply never grow old; they may die of old age, but they die young. Happy Wednesday!
