I have to tell you I am blessed with a wonderful family.  I know there are lots of working mothers out there, and I hope all of you have the help I get from my family.

I was given an additional account at work.  I had 3 accounts, and now this new one is the size of my 3 existing accounts, so I'm feeling a little overwhelmed these days.  As mothers everywhere feel this way already - jobs, house work, exercise, quality time with kids, running to kids activities, kids that won't sleep do we ever get a break????

Yesterday I had a call with my new client - my sister Whitney came over to watch the kids and pick Jake up from school so I could have a quiet house while on the call.  When I came upstairs, the kids were fed, the dishes were done and we could actually sit down and talk for a bit.

Last night I started doing the dishes (why is my kitchen always a mess - Whit already cleaned it once!)  I started to clean it, but decided to wait til Sam was in a sounder sleep zone.  Needless to say it didn't get done.

Today I got to work at 6:30am.  Left the house in mess, stayed on calls until nearly noon!  All day was busy and on the drive home thought to myself - I have so much to do at home.  Sam has Little Gym tonight, dinner to be made, dishes to do, clothes to fold etc etc.  I walked in to a clean house!  My mom had cleaned the kitchen, organized toys, vacuumed, made beds, picked up toys, FOLDED clothes (I hate folding clothes).  It was a miracle!

I am so lucky to have such great help in my life.  Thanks to you both for all the little things you do for me.  They don't go unnoticed and they help me more than you probably realize.

Thanks!  Love you guys.

What a great family you have1 :) I don't know how you do it! I am a stay at home mom (well, I work at a restaurant 1-2 nights a week, but still) and I STILL struggle. I admire you for that.

I agree with Wendy. You're so blessed to have your mom and sister
