Featured Mantra – week of 10/18

This is one of my favorite mantras in our parenting card set, mostly because it always make me giggle a little.

Let me set the scene a little bit:
I work from home 3 days a week, and occasionally, I’m flying on my own, no helper for the kids and a full-time job to attend to. Needless to say, it can get a little hectic from time to time. Throw in some brotherly love (read: fighting) between my sons and this mama can get downright exhausted and testy. Quickly.

When I get to that point, this mantra always comes to mind. It’s OK to set my boys up with a safe, fun activity for a few minutes and steal away to the bathroom. (Moms get to pee too, right?) I can use that time to get a few deep breaths, collect myself and formulate a plan for getting through the next few hours. While I’m in there, I’ll flip through my mama mantras cards to get a little more inspiration to help me be the best mom I can, and still survive the day.

    Ironic post tonight…I actually gave myself a “time out” today for not “playing nicely”…I didn’t hide in the bathroom though but it was close enough.
