I’m worried I’m going to be a bad example for my kids. I always told myself “when I have kids we have to have FHE (family home evening) EVERY WEEK,” “I want to have family scripture study and prayer NIGHTLY,” and “We have to make it to church ON TIME.” Great goals to have, but how am I going to do that then if I can’t do that now? I want to say I’m a bad mother and I’m not even a mother yet! Oh dear… That’s good for myself esteem. Future kids I’m sorry… I’m trying to get ready and I’m glad you’ll soon forget the bad example I’m being right now.
One of the most difficult things for me to do it wake up. I LOVE sleeping in. Even if it’s just until 9 o’clock it makes a WORLD of a difference. I only have to wake up at 7am 3 days a week for work (the other two days I don’t have to be at work until 1) and I HATE waking up for work during the week. It’s horrible. Sundays, I try to get up by 8 so we can be at church on time at 9… How many times has that happened lately? ONCE!! It’s pathetic. How am I suppose to be able to not only dress myself, but little people for church every week? I can tell now that sleep is going to be my ultimate sacrifice for parenting. Not getting fat, not stretching and ripping Lord knows what body parts. Not reducing my personal time, but SLEEP!
PS: sorry for the second post today, it wasn’t my intent to hog your feeds. This was just a problem for me today as I struggled to put myself together before church and I thought you’d have words of wisdom for next week 🙂
