Sincerely, Overwhelmed Mom

In between unloading the car from our first Costco trip (yes, there were two that day), texting/calling peeps, and finally getting lunch on the table for the kiddos (at 2pm…yep, I am totally mom of the year!), I went to the mailbox and was greeted by this little gem….

Instantly that song, Under Pressure by Queen (but everyone confuses with Vanilla Ice’s,  Ice ice Baby) began playing in my head.  While all the ‘to do’s whirled around in my mind…son’s b-day party, dentist appointments, pack for vacation, purchase food for vacation, new book bags, school supplies, school clothes, school shoes, officially register son for kindergarten after dentist appointment, haircuts, get daughter’s Little Flower Girls’ club started, make doctor’s appointment for toddler, etc. No! There is no way school is starting soon.  We still have so much to do, places to go, friends and family to visit and entertain, etc.  DENIAL, check!

I feel like I have been playing catch-up all summer and I really don’t even know why. So much so that our son’s b-day was over a month ago and we finally had his b-day party last night…better late than never, right!?

It gets better. Our toddler’s b-day is in 2 weeks. Yep, looks like we will be pushing that party back too. You know life is becoming too overwhelming when you find yourself changing the dates of your children’s birthday. I thought things were supposed to get easier as they got older and were sleeping through the night, potty trained, and using utensils…wrong!

I guess all those older and wiser mommas were right, it never gets easier only different. And different is good…albeit overwhelming at times…but good no less.  I suppose it is all about overcoming our shortcomings and enjoying the journey. I know I enjoyed quality time with my son today playing with all his b-day gifts together. Maybe motherhood is all about finding balance and being able to place that overwhelming sense of pressure to get everything done on the back-burner in order to enjoy what really matters…legos, lol!

Anyone else out there feeling a tad overwhelmed this time of year with back to school requirements looming in the immediate future?

Anyone have a good strategy they wouldn’t mind sharing when it comes to back to school shopping? I am all ears!

Anyone else ever lost track of time and fed their child/children lunch at 2pm?

Please share…this is a judgment free zone.

The Versatile Blogger Award

I was nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by The Good, the bad, and the Saggy.  It is such an honor to be nominated especially by such a creative, funny, and respected blogger. Thank you!!  And thank you to all of you for taking a moment out of your day to visit this Mom on the go, it means a lot to me.

Now, onto the rules for accepting this award, which are as follows:

1. Thank the award-givers and link back to them in your post.

2. Share 7 things about yourself.

3. Pass this award along to 15 or 20.(or as many as I can think of…)

4. Contact your chosen bloggers to let them know about the award.

Here are 7 random things about me….

I am the head organizer for our local playgroup and we currently have over 100 fabulous mommy members.

I firmly believe that people are good and every one should be given a second chance (especially in-laws).

I love any excuse to throw a party…It’s a Tuesday…Our toddler graduated to a booster seat…New haircut…literally any excuse!! Getting together with family and friends is so much fun!!

I do not drink pop/soda, I do not have a microwave (personal choice), and I do most of my reading in the car.

I am a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Accredited Professional (AP) in Interior Design & Construction (ID + C). I also choose to live a green and sustainable lifestyle and not talk about it 24/7.  That is not to say that you should not talk about it, I enjoy hearing/reading the passion that others have, I am just sick of hearing myself. Lol!

Given the opportunity I would love to have more children.

The biggest stressor in my life right now is the fact that since our house is on the market a realtor could call at any moment requesting a showing.  Keeping a home filled with 2 busy adults, 1 toddler, 1 preschooler, 1 elementary aged child, 1 cat, and 1 dog clean is exhausting.  I can handle tidying, that is no big deal, but it is the fact that the closets, cupboards, pantry, and basement need to be presentable at all times that is exhausting.

All right, enough about me, here are the nominations.

I really enjoy reading about other moms’ conundrums, trails and errors when it comes to motherhood.  It is so nice to know I am not alone. I also enjoy reading the recipes that moms’ posts as well as cleaver craft ideas, there are some really creative and funny mamas out there. So, without further ado, the list…..
