It's a truth few moms want to admit: We take shortcuts. Sometimes, we just don't care! It's all about survival.


Do you do any of the things these "Survivor Moms" do to get through the day with your sanity intact? Or do you have any tricks of your own to share, whether they're time-savers or mantras for dealing with any lingering mommy guilt after you've used the TV as a babysitter or fed the kids PB&J for lunch the fourth day in a row?

I've given in to letting them watch too much TV or movies when I'm not feeling well.

Here, too! In fact, we prefer breakfast foods for dinner to having them in the morning - 6am just seems too early to have heavy things like sausage or pancakes.

Same here! We love breakfast! We get farm fresh eggs from my grandparents. So we do scrammbled or fried eggs, turkey bacon, and my kids favorite breakfast food... Giant puffy pancakes (one pancake feeds the whole family. They are AMAZING. :D )
