Stress Free Mom Tip - Take time for yourself daily! Shoot for to a hour. I know that sounds like a lot of time, but every job gets a lunch break. Mommy's job is no different! I take mine in the morning when everyone is sleep! An hour of quiet alone tIme!
I call it, "mourning the last book I read." Sometimes I'll stop reading a book somewhere near the end or during a really happy time of the story for a few weeks (I set one aside for a couple of months!) So the characters can live there for a while. -MTM
