Do you ever think that you try to do too much? That maybe you can cut back on some of the things that you do, maybe take it a bit easier? I know that a lot of you have these feelings and I have had them myself from time to time.
When my children were little and in school was probably the busiest time of my life in many ways. If I wasn't volunteering at one school then I was at the other. I was always a 'Team Mom', 'Room Mom', chaperon on field trips, the one who sent in cupcakes or snacks (back in the day when the kids were allowed to have home made treats at school), Sunday School teacher, the kids had to go to practices and after school activities and someone needed to take them there and back, and I needed keep up my home. Oh yeah, the kids and Mr. Wonderful expected to be fed every day! And not just once a day would do-they wanted like three meals a day and snacks! I was doing okay before that came into play, but how could I manage one more thing? It was the perfect time for my magic wand to go on the fritz!
I was wearing myself ragged trying to get everything done. I thought that in order to be a good Mom I had to also be Superwoman. You've been there, you know from where I speak. So what's the answer?
