You've got this. It's time to let go. Let go of unrealistic expectations of ourselves as mothers. (There is no perfect.) Let go of the life we had before kids. (Sleeping in late is gone, just for the next decade or so.) Let go of the idea that we can be and do everything to everyone at all times. (You seriously need some time for yourself, as well.)
