  • I agree with moviestar, something can wait. If you need a break, which we all do, then leave the dishes in the sink the laundry on the floor and take your time to relax however you feel is best. You are a momma you deserve to feel good to!

  • Priorities, sacrifice, routine. I don't really do 'schedules' but I do schedule a time into my routine every day, even if it's just three minutes to go outside, close my eyes and listen to the silence.
