There comes a moment in every mom’s life when you’re just spent. When you have juuuussst enough energy left for your kids, but none left for you or for anyone else.
I can tell you that I am having one of those moments. Now, I know better than anybody that when you’re feeling mommy burnout the best thing you can do is acknowledge it and ask for help. So I did and I’m getting it.
This past weekend, my wonderful husband took the kids out for me so I could have a little break and tonight we’re going to a Knicks game for a little extra fun.
Best of all, tomorrow is my birthday and I am giving myself the ultimate gift. I am going on vacation – a real vacation which means I am going without the kids. So for the next three days, I’ll be sleeping through the night (yay), waking up late (double yay), and eating breakfast while reading a newspaper and turning the pages – very, very slowly.
