Sometimes, as moms. We find ourselves in a physical vs mental battle. Ok… Not sometimes, most of the time, maybe even all of the time!
Even when we are sitting on the couch at home, and one of our little one’s is napping on top of us. We are fighting against ourselves.
I really should be doing the dishes or laundry right now, but if I move, she might wake up. Well, maybe if I let her sleep for 30 minutes, and then get up, she will stay asleep.
But what if a dish falls or the laundry door slams out of habit. She will probably wake up crankier than when she fell asleep. Then both of our days will be ruined.
