Embrace the chaos. One of the most common feelings we experience as moms is overwhelm. It seems no matter how hard we try, we're always behind on work, laundry and showers—not to mention date night. But we really believe that it's when we're feeling the most stressed that it's time to step back and give ourselves a break. So call in the reinforcements and give yourself a real day (or night, or hour) off. You'll come back to mom life refreshed and ready for another round. XO, TeamMotherly P.S.
