I have four little kids. Caring for them is a full-time (plus nights and weekends) job.
I don't do much else.
It's taken some time, but I think I've finally learned to let go of my guilt over not being a super-mom. I'm at peace with a not-immaculate house, piles of laundry that build until there's no clean underwear, and Costco lasagna for dinner. I probably won't ever be the mom who runs marathons, throws over-the-top birthday parties, or makes my girls prom dresses. But that's okay.
I love my kids. I love my husband. I love my family and friends. I love writing. And life is too short not to put my focus on the things I love.
Do you have to sacrifice some things so you can write?
