The Struggle is Real

On top of diving into potty training we have hit terrible twos or early threenagers. I am not sure which.  Hudson can barely make it though the day without having a meltdown, it takes everything I have to keep calm and talk to him. But talking seems to make him more upset, so does ignoring. I have no idea how such a tiny human can get so mad. Usually over something silly, like putting ice cubes in his water….what?! I have to remind myself it is phase. But some days I can barely keep it together. Lately, he has been waking up at night, usually three times, which has both of us running ragged….and draining my patience.  With that being said recently I was that mom at Target. Hudson screaming, people staring, and me trying to get through the check out as quick as possible. But we survived! No one wants to have the child melting down but it will happen. After, all that I came home to an article that brought everything into perspective (10 Ways to Burn Out as a Mom).

The article came at the perfect time. After reading it I realized I had caused my impatience which affected Hudson. Sometimes as moms we are spread so thin we forget to take care of ourselves. Even 10 minutes to your self during the day can make all the difference in the world.

The Mother/Wife sets the tone of the home, that statement has never been more true. What do you do to keep your sanity or turn around a rough day?
