    Awesome! I'm working so much on letting things go this year. I make goals...not resolutions. I rarely accomplish all of them, but I like to look back and see what I did accomplish!

    It's hard when you are a mom and you want to be everything to everyone...and sometimes you just can't. I want to be the best I can for my kids and husband and everyone and everything else will just have to wait!


    OH MY GOSH YES. I have let go of SO STINKING MUCH this year. SO! MUCH! It feels like I've been in Survival Mode for ages and folding the laundry the same day I wash it feels MOMENTOUS and a lot of the time I feel like a crappy person because WHY CAN'T I HANDLE ALL OF THIS?

    Oh, wait. I have three small children. GOT IT. I have let it all go and it is still not enough. I need to find STILL MORE to let go in order to make this work.

    That Frozen song spoke to me. LET IT GO.


    THE THIRD BABY DOES THIS TO US. It forces us to let things go and give ourselves a break because there is NO OTHER CHOICE! Besides insanity! (which, let's face it, we have that too just a little bit. heh) Two was crazy for us because Audrey was a tough newborn but three? A whole new level of nuts. It's like playing whack-a-mole and I always lose.

    Your December sounds SO MUCH like mine. Solidarity, sister. I'm on the other side (cautiously optimistic that it will stay quiet because OMG) and I look back and I'm just... WOW. What just HAPPENED?

    Let it go. We are in the trenches of Motherhood right now. It's okay to let things go. (I say this daily in my head. I just don't always like to listen. ahem.)


    I love, love, love this. It is so hard for us woman to scale back when we set a goal, but it is ok and we need to for our sanity.
    Thanks for posting this.

    Totally agree. Let it go. I look at my parents and realize that there will be a time when I have 'my own' time again (and not just when I decide to close the door when I go potty). Right now my freedom is limited and my choices are mostly for others. And I'm okay with that. That's my phase of life. I know I'll look back and be thankful that I gave my all just so my kids could have a childhood they deserve.
    Let it go indeed
