Halloween Time and a little balance

Because of her jet black curly hair and white complexion, this year we decided that Alana would be Snow White :) Oh how times have changed. This year my friends went to an Egyptian-themed Halloween party and pregnant me just didn't have the urge to go. Maybe it was a little bit of the fact that I can't go dressed as anything but a pumpkin at the moment, haha!!! But all jokes aside, I do need to find a better balance. I'm sure that you moms can relate to this but when I look at Alana, my only desire is to spend every waking moment with her. Looking at her right now while I blog, I feel like I should be teaching her something new, something more than just sitting her in front of a tv or toys. Then I start to think about going out with friends and I feel torn. I want to spend time with friends, but at the same time I have a responsibility to her, don't I? Don't get me wrong, it's not like I never leave the house or something, but there are just those days when I wonder if I'm doing it all wrong. Am I one of those mothers that just hover over her child and never take a break that I probably need? What if I'm just not the partying type anymore? I still make time for friends, talk on the phone, go out to lunch/dinner with them. Anyway, I guess this is all just a learning experience, right?

Back to Halloween though, Alana was the most adorable Snow White I have ever laid eyes on but I guess I'm a little biased. Hey, she's my daughter. I think I'm allowed! Hope everyone had a great halloween!!
