How do you feel about weekends? At various points in my parenting journey, I have dreaded them, looked forward to them, and felt entirely undone by them. A friend of mine admitted recently that she’s been watching the clock on Sunday afternoon, counting down until bedtime, because in the morning she can send her kids back to school. And she feels kind of terrible about that. Another friend has been feeling bad about not focusing enough on her kids on the weekend.
Here’s the truth: We’re all experiencing different things on the weekend, but a lot of us are feeling bad about our experience.
So in my mission to create more happy moms, I have some tips to make your weekends happier, no matter what kid season you are in.
Let’s banish that Monday guilt, OK?
