The busy moms guide to juggling everything (and losing your mind)

Being a mom is a full-time job in itself, but add in work, school runs, extracurricular activities, and trying to keep the house from looking like a tornado hit it, and you've got a recipe for disaster. As a busy mom myself, I've learned a thing or two about juggling everything and still maintaining my sanity (sort of). Here are a few tips and tricks I've picked up along the way:

Embrace the Chaos

Let's face it: your life is never going to be calm and peaceful when you're a mom. There will always be something that needs your attention, whether it's a crying baby, a school project that's due tomorrow, or a sink full of dishes. Instead of fighting against the chaos, embrace it. Look at each day as an adventure and try to find the humor in the madness.

Lower Your Standards

Let's be real: you're not going to win any awards for having the cleanest house or the most gourmet meals when you're a busy mom. Instead of trying to do everything perfectly, lower your standards a bit. It's okay if the dishes pile up in the sink, or if you serve chicken nuggets and chips for dinner. Your sanity is more important than having everything perfect.

Find Your Tribe

Being a mom can be lonely, especially if you're juggling a lot of responsibilities. That's why it's important to find your tribe - other moms who understand what you're going through. Whether it's a local moms' group, an online community, or just a group of friends who are also moms, having a support system can make all the difference.

Laugh at Yourself

Finally, the most important tip of all: don't take yourself too seriously. Being a mom is hard work, but it's also full of hilarious moments. Just giggle a little at yourself, the next time you show up to a PTA meeting with your shirt on inside out. Being able to laugh at yourself will make the tough moments just a little bit easier to handle.

So there you have it - the busy mom's guide to juggling everything (and losing your mind). Remember, you're doing an amazing job, even if it doesn't always feel like it. And if all else fails, just pour yourself a glass of wine and call it a day.
