When Meagan approached me about participating in this blog series, Balancing Motherhood & Miter saws, I thought she was crazy.
I haven’t blogged in six months. So why would she want me giving advice!
Blogging is hard. Having a DIY blog means big projects. Like turn your daily life upside down kind of projects. Painting rooms, carpentry work, demolition, messy, time-sucking, expensive kind of projects.
I actually love a good DIY project. But I have a husband who does not. He hates the mess, and really doesn’t care if we have a plank wall or not.
And as for my kids, who are now 6 and 4, I’m finding it way harder to do DIY projects now that they’re older. Is that crazy. I thought it would get easier as they got older. Not the case. No more naps, still waking up at 6 am, and they now have a crazier schedule than I do. Between school events, sporting activities, birthday parties and play dates there is NO time.
I just blog when I can now.
This past weekend my husband and I decided to tackle a little project that I have wanted to do since we moved into our house 6 years ago!
We built a little closet fort in my son’s bedroom. It’s not done yet. Still needs a railing, some lighting, and I want to make some artwork for it. But it’s ok for it to not be perfect. My kids certainly don’t care that’s incomplete. They’ve already spent endless hours in their little closet fort. And they DON’T care about how pretty and put together the space is. They’re going to destroy it anyways!
Want to have a half complete closet nook too? Then check out my link here.
Now I want to see how all these other blogger moms do it!
