I Had a Nervous Breakdown Over Laundry

I Had a Nervous Breakdown Over Laundry

As mothers, we all have our thing that we absolutely hate doing, right? For some, it might be cooking, or vacuuming, or emptying the dishwasher, or doing a craft, or scheduling doctor’s appointments. For me, it is folding and putting away laundry. I know, conceptually, that I can fold an entire basket of clothes during an […]

I Didn’t Want to be a Working Mom

The Hour That Saves My Sanity

It probably goes without saying that I have more things on my To Do List than I have time to complete them.  I am notorious for thinking I can complete 15 minutes’ worth of tasks in 5 minutes. That way of thinking contributes to my frequent frustration that I haven’t done anything. I haven’t really not done anything. It’s just […]

I am that Mom…and you are too.

More than six years ago, I dropped my son off in his infant classroom for his very first day. As a first time mom and an employee of his school, I was adamant on not being that mom. You know, one of those moms that stresses everyone out with too many needs, or not enough.  The one […]
