I definitely try for the balance, we must aim high huh? Stressful at times, but I love every minute of it. Because you totally described me! I am grateful to have found your blog , as I do a great deal of searching on Pinterest when I am up against a parenting moment that I do not feel qualified to handle. My mom pushed my 18 month old, I pushed the newborn and my 3 and 2 year old walked. And they were dismantling the tent when we passed the finish line, but we did it. Even though I have to work at organizing, I do not like to be over-busy, and I am not overly competitive at least compared to my family! Or it can, but only with help.
