Yep. We’re still rocking Halloween pajamas at our house. And yes…at least one room in our house, usually two, look like a bomb went off.
The other day a friend of mine called me supermom and I just laughed. I am no where near supermom status. I work full time. I write this blog. I have a baby who sleeps through the night maybe twice a week.
I am exhausted.
I’ve discovered that I need little goals to help this former control-freak cope with all of the mess and stress that comes with having a baby. So here are my “supermom” stay-sane goals, in no particular order:
1. Make our bed every day.
2. Clean up the kitchen each night before going to bed. (this happens most nights! go me!)
3. Put away all of the toys each night.
4. Stay on top of the constant laundry. (this one is HARD)
5. Get out of bed 20 minutes early so I have time to do my hair. This one is kind of important to my sanity.
I’ve had to learn to let things go. Our fridge is never fully stocked. I always forget to buy at least three things from the grocery store. We are usually out of soap in either the kitchen, laundry room, or bathroom. Sometimes all three. But such is life as a mom. I know it won’t always be like this. So I have my 5 little goals to help me stay sane. Oh, and I hired a house cleaner….TOTAL GAME CHANGER.
What do you do to keep yourself from feeling overwhelmed?
