It's OK, We've all been there

Trying to stay sane as a mom can be a challenge.  No worries, help is here!

  • Realize it is ok to be in dish denial.  Use paper plates for dinner if you are on the edge.
  • Close your eyes and imagine your happy place for 5 minutes every day.
  • Taking the long way home when you are alone in the car is not an avoidance problem.
  • If you start counting kitchen tiles out of boredom, it’s ok.  Call a friend though if you begin to name them.
  • It’s ok not to save every paper coming home from school.
  • You only need to dust behind the books on the shelves if you move.
  • You are not losing your hearing just because at some point you can’t hear your kids fighting.
  • We believe there is no calories in birthday cake, Valentine’s candy, and spring time Peeps, or anything chocolate.
  • If you feel you are beginning to lose it, click your heels 3 times and say, “There’s no place like home….there’s no place like home…there’s no place like home.”
  • Repeat number 2 as necessary.
