Challenges of being a mother

The past few weeks have been challenging and I feel like I am being tested in all aspects of my life. I am having a hard time managing my time and being happy while doing it all. I find that I am away from home too long and when I come home there are a million things to do but not enough time to do them all and play with Anabelle. I also struggle with not teaching Anabelle who her Mommy is, I am gone all day so I fear that I will not be able to teach her the things that bring me happiness. When I get home, I try to do things that involve her and still allow me to check some stuff of my to do list.

Yesterday when I got home, we went outside and put an old painting that I did on a smaller frame. Anabelle helped with holding the tape measurer and the pencil. Today, we hung the painting and a mirror. I feel like I want to change her room as she gets older and grows, I think that her room needs to grow with her. So, we are redecorating. :)

I hung the mirror and painting and she was so excited that she could look at herself that she started dancing in front of it.

Then she practiced her acting skills and was making all kinds of silly faces.

I wish that I could stay home with my baby and teach her the world. I feel like I miss so much while I am gone and it kills me.

I don't know why I took this picture but this little stuffed animal is so cute. Ron and Susan got it for Belle when they went to Australia.

The rest of the night we played with toys, made dinner, took baths and then Belle went to bed. She is such an amazing little girl. I miss the time that I am away from her but, we really have a great time when we are together!
