If you are anything like me you may have days of feeling overwhelmed, underappreciated, and sometimes you may feel, flat out – guilty for working or for choosing “you” time, or for whatever reason. Mom guilt is real! Mom stress is real! I am here to let you know you are not alone. The guilt of sending your kid to daycare all day, not working with you child enough on reading, working too much, not being there for awards, being a single mom, not being able to send your kids to the “better” school, whatever the reason… JUST BREATHE! You are only one person and this mom stuff has many of us stressed and overwhelmed. Here are some mom moments shared for this post:
