Ditching the To-Do List
When people ask me how I do it all. I have one short answer..."I don't."  Too many times as mommas, we allow ourselves to become overwhelmed by the unending tasks.  Anxiety and depression is triggered when we feel like we can't possibly measure up to mommas on Instagram and social media who seem to have it all together.  Life is not meant to be perfectly scheduled.  Sometimes it is best to ditch that to-do list and be in the moment with your kids.  Give yourselves grace, throw the laundry off to the side,  and enjoy the magic of ordinary every day moments.
