Burnt out, swamped, overwhelmed...whatever you call it, moms are feeling it, big time. I talk to so many clients that feel like they are just crawling though each day, only to get up and hit rinse and repeat the next morning.
Moms are the sun that everyone revolves around, the duct tape that fixes everything, the center of the family universe...we are "the keeper of all the things." Family things, kid things, school things, sports things, work things, husband things, you name it, we are responsible for it. Admittedly, some of us (Me, Me, Me) pile a lot of these "things" on ourselves. I like some things done a certain way, and no one can do it like I can, so okay I'm "keeping" those things. I work a more flexible schedule than my spouse so I'm "keeping" some more things. The list goes on and on...until it doesn't. Mom burnout is REAL ladies...it can flatten you like a charging elephant going 60 in a 30mph zone.
