As always, it's not universally true, but this is familiar to me!
Guilty on nearly all counts...
Do you feel like you're 'on the brink'? I can't say that I consistently do, but I certainly have my moments (days/weeks).
I do often think that the reason I (and many moms) are more emotional (read: cry at commercials, well up with pride at a tball hit) is because our emotions are so close to the surface (or the 'brink', I suppose). So raw, just asking, waiting to be tapped.
(I can't, however, get behind the 'take a month away' method...)
Stress level: overwhelmed
Approaching level: tears
It's good to be busy, it's good to be busy, it's good...
From the online survey of 7,164 U.S. mothers, conducted the week of April 17 by TODAY.com and Insight Express:
- 46 percent of moms say their husbands/partners cause them more stress than their kids do.
- 72 percent of moms stress about how stressed they are.
Biggest cause of stress: 60 percent say it’s lack of time to do everything that needs to get done.
- 60 percent of moms say raising girls is more stressful than raising boys.
- Nine out of 10 moms stress about staying fit and attractive.
I'm pretty much in agreement with this.
I really like this. It's a saver.
But first you have to learn to do them...
Great. Now I have anxiety over the fact that my kids can feel my anxiety!
