3 Inspirations for Overwhelmed Homemakers and Parents

There are times when at-home parenting, and homemaking, will try your patience, stretch your limits, and (if you're like me!) even make you feel like you're losing your mind. Those people who seem to think this is an easy undertaking, the apparently never-ending piles of laundry, the careful balancing act between healthy, natural, kid-friendly and frugal meals... can make this feel like a fight you'll never win. On days when I just want to give in and curl back under the covers, I find it helps to have some inspiration, some advice, some understanding from someone who's been there too. Some of my favorite ladies have served to inspire me, and I want to share these posts with all of you too. Happy reading!

Bonus: the last post was featured on an amazing series from Amy at Finer Things in Life- Mommy, Come Home. Find the posts on page 1, page 2, and page 3. These posts are chock-full of help for those not-yet in or new to at-home parenting, and inspiration for veterans.

As always, I am happy to post this at Finer Things Friday from Amy, Family Fridays at HomeEverAfter, at Homemaker Mondays, check out her site while you're there; and at Works For Me Wednesdays at this site.

Thank you for the encouragement! I've been dragging lately with a newly mobile toddler and a baby on the way.

I completely understand, Big Boy was only 15 months when I got pregnant w/ Baby Boy. It can be a challenge- hang in there!

Thanks for the mention on the Mommy, Come Home series. We mom's need to stick together and encourage each other! :)
