I look at Roozle’s baby pictures a lot. She was super cute, so small, and it feels like a different life. And yet, it wasn’t. I struggled hard with feeling like there was too much to do and too much undone.

Every day.

As I chatted with two other parents about this earlier this week, we all realized we’ve been saying this for five years. We should just accept the undone as our new reality. I wonder, did I feel like this before becoming a parent too? And I just don’t remember? Or didn’t really care?

I’m not sure.

But I’m ready to let some things go. I’ll start by returning the two library books that are due and I don’t have time for. I can borrow them again another time. Or never. And that’s okay too.
