"I know a time will come when the schoolwork is too much to miss or when activities require attendance. At that point, we won’t be able to do what we’re currently doing. In the meantime, though, we are maxing ourselves out."

As moms, we are constantly juggling 100 things. We drive to swimming lessons, run to the grocery store, pick up random items, cook dinner, do laundry and make and attend appointments. By the end of it all, you are probably maxed out on appointments each month. But what about appointments for yourself?

"I have to make myself remember this when it comes to planning activities and meals, and even disciplining my two children. Different approaches work for each of my kids," wrote Omaha mom Jaime Wyant. "Overall, though, when we figure out what works for us and for each kid individually, things get a whole lot easier."

"Everywhere I look, people are embracing and cheering on female bosses (#girlboss) and even more so, female survivors (#metoo). However, this mostly pertains to the age demographic of 18 and older. What about our young children?"

"In this day and age, I could find the answer to ALMOST anything online. From planting a garden to sleep training a baby, it’s all right there. You know what though? I still find myself calling or texting my mom more often than turning to Google, and I feel like that says something about our relationship."
