I read this article on the Power of Moms. I'm totally behind on my google reader, but thankfully a few people had linked to it on their facebook page.
I couldn't agree more.
Although, I doubt that most moms are doing things off printrist to make their KIDS happy. There are exceptions, I have found some pretty good science experiments to do this summer that I know the boys will flip for. I think they're doing it for THEM.
Which is great.
Doing crafts to make yourself happy serves a lot of purposes.
But isn't the main problem finding that balance. Feeling like you got some me time (so you don't feel like my post below) and then giving your all to your kids once your own tank has been filled.
I am not sure when I fill my tank lately. I'm feeling pretty run down and stretched. But I know a slower week will come.
Until then I have a lot to do, I should get off this computer. :)
