I feel torn lately between the person I want to be and the person I am. I want to go to graduate school, but the time scares me. I feel like almost everything I do lately is for someone else and yet I am torn when it comes to doing something for myself knowing it will take time away from the kids and husband.

I think that all soon to be moms should go through counseling so that they are better equipped to deal with the transformation that takes place when you become a mom. Forget the birthing classes and take a mental health class. Maybe just a class to help you organize your own life and make sure that you know to take time just for yourself even when you have a baby in arms and a husband in need of attention.

I have said it before but it always holds true, a happy mama is a better mama.

Now back to cooking dinner, doing some laundry, and getting the kids ready for school tomorrow.
