Some days are almost magical with their cuteness and happiness. Other days, well…let’s just say that it’s hard to really be “there.”
When I was planning this site, a friend said to me in these exact words: “You should make a manual on how to take care of yourself with children, and live, and not drive yourself crazy.”
It was like she took the words right out of my brain.
I want that manual!
Because this whole thing we call "balance" can be HARD.
Like everything you’ve done in life, you want to be AMAZING at being a mom (and wife and professional and woman…). So “good enough” makes you cringe just a little.
This comes from a good place. But even the best, most perfect plans can unravel a little.
Sometimes, you're afraid that you're failing, and you haaate failing.
You don't always enjoy *every* precious moment, and some days you just fantasize about having a whole day ALONE.
You feel like you’re the only one who feels like this (and Pinterest isn't helping).
And the B-word (bad mom) even enters your thoughts.
