A one woman band

She thought she could do it all.
Why not? She was well organized, smart, and talented.

But no matter how well she planned,
she wondered how she was going to get everything accomplished.

How could she pound on the timpani drums,
and run across the stage in time to play the xylophone?

Her  concerns grew when she realized how many people would be watching.

She broke into a flop sweat.
Perhaps doing everything by herself wasn’t such a good idea, after all.

So she closed the curtain, dimmed the lights,
and did the most difficult thing of all:
She asked for help.


Are you anything like her?

yes, it is the hardest thing to do to ask for help. But if asked and you get it, it can feel so darn good. Who says we have to do it all on our own?

Well let’s see. I have 2 Nannies, a PA, and a cleaning lady. And they are forever telling me to let go and let them have some control. Clearly I do not go peacefully into this dark night…kicking and screaming they’ll wrench responsibility from my clutched fists!

I tend to be a bit of a perfectionist so yes, I can fall into this trap. Though with my family, I just try to get them to do things the way I think they should be done 🙂

This sounds like every mom I know, it’s like we become men that don’t ask for direction when it comes to doing things.
