There are days when you are completely crushing it as a mom.
You are making all the connections, validating all the feelings, teaching all the things…essentially firing on all cylinders.
Unfortunately, there are also other days when you just can’t. CAN. NOT.
Everything from the sound of your children’s voices to their tugging on your clothes seems like sensory torture.
Unlike most jobs, there is no option to call in sick from motherhood.
You cannot take a mental health day when the weight of your children’s (seemingly unending) needs is just too much.
This is why it is so important to have a game plan to help you survive a bad day, whenever it occurs.
