Sorry Kids, Sometimes You Just Don't Come First! Mom Needs Her Sanity, Too!
April 17, 2012 at 11:42 AM

It's a truth few moms want to admit: We take shortcuts. Sometimes, we just don't care! It's all about survival.


Do you do any of the things these "Survivor Moms" do to get through the day with your sanity intact? Or do you have any tricks of your own to share, whether they're time-savers or mantras for dealing with any lingering mommy guilt after you've used the TV as a babysitter or fed the kids PB&J for lunch the fourth day in a row?

    Same here! We love breakfast! We get farm fresh eggs from my grandparents. So we do scrammbled or fried eggs, turkey bacon, and my kids favorite breakfast food... Giant puffy pancakes (one pancake feeds the whole family. They are AMAZING. :D )

    I've definitely used TV as a babysitter from time to time. If I have an important call or need to get some stuff done, I'll put a DVD on for my son so he sits quietly for a while.

    Call me a weirdo mom, but none of those things hit home with me. It was fun to watch though.

    Yep, sometimes you just have to, but I think as long as you aren't doing that all day, every day, then it's no big deal and definitely not something any of us should feel guilty about doing. :)
