Happy Tips for TIred Mommies

Do you sometimes fall asleep mid-sentence, while standing up?  Chances are, you're a mother. 

Demands are high and rest time is low but I know the aching and yearning you feel in your heart that you just don't want to miss a single opportunity to enjoy your child(ren).  I've had a lot of opportunities to learn how to "turn lemons into lemonade" and so I thought I'd share some of my tips with all you amazing mothers out there...

Tip #1... When you've graduated from a "junk drawer" to a "cluttered office" to "the one peaceful clean room in the house... and then THAT too is taken over by life and children...When you think there's no haven left... NOT ONE CLEAN ROOM in the entire house to escape to when you need a moment to refuel... and it's 115 degrees outside so you can't escape there either...!!!  CURL UP with the most BEAUTIFUL creation you'll ever make... your son or daughter.. get lost in the beauty of their eyelashes and the serenity of their face as they sleep.  Your cares and worries will melt away and 10 years from now you won't care that you didn't have the perfectly decorated house; you'll be grateful that time with your child was more important to you.
