There is never enough of it, it goes way too quickly, and yet it seems to be at the root of most of my worry.
Get the twins to bed on time. Get to work on time. Get up so I can have time to exercise. When was the last time the dogs were walked? Am I spending too much time working? Do I spend enough time with my husband? I spend too much time online. Do I give the twins enough one on one time? Do I let them spend too much time playing together/alone? Should I be spending more time reading to them? Who has time for the animals anymore? Do I spend too much time exercising and not enough time on my family? It has been a long time that those baby clothes have been gathered upstairs. Has it really been that much time since they fit into these? Time flew by and somehow they are 18 months already. I feel bad complaining about time when I know there are others, and I once was one, who would take my time worries in a heartbeat.
How do I spend less time worrying about time, and more time using it wisely?

It’s tough to juggle time when I don’t have a baby. I can only imagine how tough it is with two toddlers and a job. I too spend too much time online. I hope you’re not being too hard on yourself though. It IS tough.

When you find the answer, let me know. I have no idea how to manage my time wisely and how to be satisfied with what I get done in the amount of time I have. I feel like time is flying by way to fast and faster all the time now that I have a baby. Life is but a vapor…

I feel exactly the same way! Time rules my life and it seems that there is never ever enough of it to go around. I feel guilty for spending too much time in one area and not enough in another. Oh and I only have one 18 month old! I can’t imagine how much less time I would have with 2 of that same age. You are doing a great job balancing everything!

I think my biggest fear is whether they both get enough time. That is the hardest thing to balance. Thank you 🙂

A dear friend once told me that the moms that worry are typically the ones who are doing a good job. It’s the moms who don’t worry that concern her. (She’s a clinical psychologist.)
