We’re constantly walking around like a Walking Dead extra because we stayed up late trying to get that damn to do list done that got ignored during the day because the kids, husband, neighbor and PTA all needed something from us and before we knew it the day was over.
Then there’s the little fact that we are in direct competition with all of the other moms on the block and don’t realize that they are in the trenches with us and are feeling the same way that we feel and the friendly (or not so friendly) competition is all in our sleep deprived heads!!!
Other moms are not our competition! Other moms are our sisters. They are the ones we need to be turning to when our kids and husbands are driving us crazy!
We really need to stop being so hard on ourselves. So what the house is a mess, the laundry is stacked higher than the dishes, which no longer fit in the sink. Are your kids safe, happy, fed, clean and loved?! If you answered yes to all of those then you’re doing better than you give yourself credit for and for that I salute you!
Now go on and have that second (or third) glass of wine. You deserve it.
