I follow Jenna’s posts regularly, as a friend, but also as a working mom who gets maybe three things to herself to actually call her own. I look forward to the blogs, because they’re a quick glimpse into a world I do not belong too, but wish I did. I’m a working mom, praying we’ll be blessed with the stay-at-home role. My husband wants it for us, but we’re both not at that point yet. I’ve been struggling with this concept for some time: How do you give 100% to your child, 100% to your husband, and 100% effort at work? Somehow, mathematically, it doesn’t add up. It’s causing me a lot of tears, a lot of heartache, and a lot of stress. But I wanted to share some ways I’m trying to make things flow in my home, so that one day my children, my husband, and even my boss could Call Me Happy too.
