mom * time

taken straight from the latest issue of parenting magazine, i found this to feed my soul. ;)

so long, worry!

with the holidays full speed ahead, you have enough on your plate without sweating the small stuff. what not to stress about this month:

     * showering daily.  (ha.ha. this still never happens)
              ~seriously. the air is drier in the winter, which means you need
                your skin's natural lubricants.
     *spending more time with your kids.
              ~it's good for your children to see their mom as someone who
                takes care of herself, whether that's heading to spin class or reading
                a book. now you can say "do as i do" and not feel guilty about that!
     * cooking from scratch.
              ~you know why your great-grandmother made everything by hand?
                because she had to! duncan hines cake mix didn't hit the market
                until 1940s. considering her particular streak, she'd applaud your use
                of premade piecrust, grocery delivery, and boxed soup. (so, i don't
                agree here, but it's still funny) ;)
     *a spotless house.
              ~yes, there is such a thing as being too clean. a little bacteria doesn't
                necessarily hurt, especially for kids, whose immune systems need
                some exposure to germs in order to build up resistance. if you wipe
                down floors, sinks, and toilets-and change sheets every week or two-
                you're golden. (ha.ha.ha.)
