Mommy (and summertime) blues

I have a friend who just had her first child.  Take it from her, and from me – it’s an adjustment, especially when you’re in your thirties!  You’ve had your career, then marriage and career, and now baby, marriage and (sometimes) career – a lot to juggle.

My cousin shared this image with my moms group and me – it’s been super helpful.  I think it’s helpful for people who aren’t moms too.  With the summertime especially comes a change in routine, and it’s helpful to have a simple checklist to keep oneself sane. 🙂

People combat the blues in different ways – staying busy is probably the chief way.  It’s not that being busy is bad but it doesn’t always truly solve the problem.

Fill yourself up today and enjoy your summer!
