Cool moms never sleep right? Between being a wife, mama, photographer, and blogger there's so much juggling I do on a day to day basis. Most days I don't feel like I have it together. I sometimes want to quit all of my jobs and just "run away" with my little family and live a simple life. Does anyone else ever feel the same way? Lately I have been doing most of my work between 12am-4am and spending an hour or two during the day finding time to work.

I hate not giving 100% of myself when doing something. I have tried working during the day and setting timers and on some days it works but usually it doesn't. I instantly feel mom guilt if I'm on my phone instead of playing with Z or comforting and taking care of Adrien. I also really enjoy making time to hangout with Daryl on a daily basis. That is why I choose to sacrifice some of my sleep so I can be present for my family. However, there are days when I push things to the last minute and I do need to find a way to -try- and balance work/mom/wife/friend/etc.. I'm not perfect (;

How do those of you who work from home manage personal, work, and being mama/wife (dad/husband)?

Well when I was finally getting the hang of my new schedule, Adrien got sick. He was extremely sick Wednesday-Friday and now that he is on an antibiotic he is doing better (no fever) but still showing other symptoms and not sleeping very well. It's been so heartbreaking and I feel like I have a newborn again since I've been up every 2-2.5 hours during the night trying to comfort him. Not only is it at night but it also leads into the next day and hardly getting any work done.

When I was texting my dad this evening he suggested that Daryl should give him a blessing (thanks for the brilliant idea dad). Well it's been about 4 hours since Daryl (with the help of our friend Eric) gave Adrien a blessing and he's doing SO MUCH BETTER. I'm so thankful for the priesthood and the blessing it is in our life. Adrien is finally getting some much needed sleep. He's been sleeping for over 3.5 hours which is the longest stretch of sleep he has had in days! We have another doctors appointment in the morning and I'm hoping things only get better from here.
