Summertime Blues Already?

Summer is here, a week early if my thermometer is any indication. Mine really started last week when school let out.Since I started working again, running my various blogs and social media ventures, I keep myself busy. Also, my time management skills suck. I blame it on my very well known ADD.

Now I am working on keeping myself together and not letting Peanut become bored out of his mind. Oh, he entertains himself quite well. But, this is the kid that decided there was to be no camp this summer. None at all. He just wants to chill out at home.

It doesn’t work that way. So, I have deemed him Mommy’s blogging assistant for the summer. He is also my miniature camera man. Not to say that he’s not getting what he wants out of it. On my other blog, A Daily Pinch, he is going to be posting his own weekly blog “Peanut’s Pick”. With photos taken at his height and whatever angle he chooses.

Yet, I worry I am not doing enough for or with him. What do you do in that situation? Right now? I am getting up early and going to bed ultra late. My sleep is already suffering.

This is the gig I happily signed onto when I became a mom.

Yet I question. Why can’t I be the woman that does it all. The one who is perky from the time she gets up, until the time she lays her meticulously groomed head on her pillow. Boundless energy, always on top of things and a clean house.

Do they really exist? Or is it a figment of my imagination?

I will find out as the weeks move along, but one thing is for sure, I can’t work willy-nilly. It has to be efficient, as well as succinct. My days of having my little sweetheart tagging along without a care are short-lived.

I won’t lose those for anything.
