I'm so with you on everything in this post. Women who work full time outside the home and have young kids really are the minority, and it's nice to read your honest self-appraisal. I am amazed that you get such long blog posts written among all that parenting, running, and working!

Beautifully written post- what a great writer you are! You may think you are simply "good enough for now," but you are clearly a great mom/wife/friend/breadwinner. I can only imagine how hard you work- just reading this post is exhausting.

When Kara and Nathan are parents one day, they will be amazed at everything their mama juggled!

As a fellow working mama supporting her family, I love this. I am a different mother than what I thought I would be, and the working part is the biggest difference! I find it hard to take time for myself, and certainty drop the ball on thing but it is good to hear this sort of thing from others. :)

This is what works for my family though, and I'm so grateful that my kids (3 and 1) get to be at home!

Oh, that reference to college... I wish we could all look at our lives, and our parents, and their mistakes and remember that they didn't live in a bubble and they could only do the best they could in that period of time's circumstances. Thanks for reminding me! There is and was too much pressure to be perfect and not meeting our own or others expectations is killer!

Your professor got it right. Very right. Do the best you can do at this point in time and keep working on it. Good stuff.

I had to come back and re read this and I have to say that I love it. It's full of little nuggets that really make sense. Thank you. You have a great family.
