I Thought I Knew What Busy Meant

I remember life before kids; I was a college student, a restaurant manager, a girlfriend, a fiance’ and a wife.  I thought that I knew what busy meant, little did I know that scheduled and full doesn’t necessarily mean busy.  Just because our days were full, did not mean that we were busy.

I didn’t learn what busy truly meant until I became a mom, chasing a kid who can flip, strip and roll out a diaper every 5 minutes… that’s busy.  Having a child follow you around while chattering nonstop with a stream of “why’s, what do you think, how do you know’s” while you try to cook, clean and entertain another child.  That’s busy.

Juggling PTA, kickball, soccer, girl scouts, pre-school performances, kindergarten activities, a husband, a household, a blog, a marriage, family, friends and precariously balanced sanity, that is busy. Having my day start with a 3 year old bouncing on the bed chattering about the day to come while coercing a 6 year old into her school uniform, while packing a healthy lunch and braiding long blonde hair, that’s busy.   All of this has re-defined busy, hectic, crazy and my life and I wouldn’t trade a moment of it for a quiet, boring, peaceful day.

Watch and see the busy, fun-filled, hectic, non-stop days of mine and some other wonderful ladies in the newest (and possibly busiest!) episode of BlissTV.

Filming the video with my kiddos and watching it with them, laughing over the silliness of the outtakes and smiling at the beauty of that special parenting bond makes me even happier to be a part of this amazing campaign!
