It is way better being stressed about my own kids rather than other people&#39;s kids, and then coming home and taking it out on my kids!<br /><br />I have NO problem asking for help. My problem is GETTING the help! I have NO family around.

Glad you have a MOPS group to get out with and know to look for help. They might seem like little things, but if you are the main caregiver, and I know you are because you are a farm wife, and there are always times when we feel like single parents, no slam on our husbands, that&#39;s just the way their job Lana Wallpehttp://www.blogger.com/profile/06003384586082557583noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2857161791109887176.post-78669308136448918242012-04-11T16:54:01.497-05:002012-04-11T16:54:01.497-05:00Oh gosh, this brought me right back to my second (...Oh gosh, this brought me right back to my second (our son) who was allergic to dairy, wheat and eggs! I was nursing so I didn&#39;t have so many options to eat, but he got better. I did an elimination diet, which meant for a week or two I ate chicken, potatoes and rice. Then slowly, so slowly added one food back at a time. It was so hard (no fruit or veggies!) but it totally worked.

I often think I will NEVER be caught up, let alone ahead. I have recently had a lady from our new church offer to come for a few hours once a week to do whatever I want her to do. So far that has included scrubbing down 2 of our 3 bathrooms. It was hard. The first week, after she left, I actually cried.

You sound like you have a good attitude, even though you are down. Keep looking for the little things that bring joy, flowers blooming, spending time outside with the kiddos, MOPS and the inspiration you draw from family and friends, blogging.<br /><br />This, too,Robynhttp://theranchwifechronicles.com/noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2857161791109887176.post-61813112240610310962012-04-11T06:55:19.778-05:002012-04-11T06:55:19.778-05:00great post, katie! we all feel like this sometime...great post, katie! we all feel like this sometimes, for sure. and i agree- i feel like i am swallowing my pride almost when i ask for help and that what i need help with is insignificant. i hear ya!Cassie @ Primitive &amp; Properhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/07848936864799611251noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2857161791109887176.post-48798286993161698422012-04-11T06:44:45.914-05:002012-04-11T06:44:45.914-05:00I totally can relate to this.

This season will pass.. my girls are 27 and 21 now... They fill my life with joy and I admit I do miss them being little. You have it right.. ask for help when you need it because we all struggle at times.
