Let's not forget...

I've been blog-hopping and noticed quite a few Mommas retreating from Blogosphere for one plain simple reason... they've lost themselves to Blogging... or, rather the Internet? and find themselves guilty for not caring for their children more.

For a while, I was afraid I would be one of them, too. That is one of the main reasons why there were such little posts from me...

As a SAHM turned WAHM, it is easy to forget what the true reason was to leave a job to stay at home... for me, it will always be because of my little one.

Even before marriage, I was one who had dreamt of being able to stay at home and take care of my own kids... if I am given the chance... if we can be financially stable enough etc. etc. I am BLESSED and GIVEN the chance. Now that I am GIVEN the chance, I do not want to misuse it. I need to know and need to keep reminding myself that my son is my priority. NOT the business.

For a while... (lucky it was not a loooong while), I 'put my son aside' and focused on the blogs, the shop... the business. My little one standing next to me while I was on the PC, begging for attention, as I 'finish' typing up that 'last' blog post... as I 'finish' posting an item for sale... as I answer that 'last email'... I'm glad it's over now...

For a while... I was caught tempted to put business first. Friends kept giving me ideas on how I can 'take my business to a higher degree'... some would even challenge me and ask me to 'put priority first'... they, of course, would think that business comes first.

Sorry, my friends. I know you all mean well but in my world... Playgroup comes before business. Time with my son comes before anything else, indeed... call me ??? but how else do I do it?

I agree. If i had a child I definitely wouldn't be doing Tiny Tapir the way I am doing it now. (ironically)

Good for you for keeping perspective!!

haha...good say, that is exactly how my 2 twin boys beg me in their walker right now. *making me feel guilty typing this now*.

Anyway, after turning into a SAHM, i still enjoy being with them at the same time, focusing on my blog. can't live without communicating with the world (will go mad with my 3 kids if i don)
