As the weather has become cooler and it is getting darker earlier, my children have become moody and whiney. It’s been a long week of managing fights over toys and whether or not a sibling is looking at the other one. Towards the end of the week, I realized my children’s attitudes weren’t necessarily reflecting the weather…they were reflecting me.
Often, moms find ourselves on the back burner. It’s not necessarily on purpose, but we find it easiest to take care of everyone else before we realize that we are on empty and ready to throw in the towel. To quote an amazing woman (my mom), “Taking care of ourselves, IS taking care of our families.”
