Happy May! The sunshine has made my days a little brighter. Mother’s Day is approaching and I am here to remind you of that every day, YOU are amazing & every day YOU deserve to hear that , here is a list of a few things I know we ALL do & we tend to not even realize :
- we have patience- with our children of course, BUT with all of those around us as well
2. we show such incredible restraint in our IEP meetings
3. We cook, clean and organize all while holding on the phone to make appointments
4. We function with the smallest amount of sleep
5. We educate EVERYONE around us
6. We are the QUEENS of multitasking, every day, all day …
This list should and could go on, but, I think you get the drift. You are all amazing and I hope this helps you realize just how much. I hope your day brings you a moment of peace, I know for many this day may not be easy. Know that we are all in this together.
Here is a repeat of some self-care ideas for the momma’s out there.
I have been really struggling with our guy being a “senior”, it has been such a hard year being virtual and on top of it, nothing is typical for him in this “graduation”. I have a lot to figure out in the next few weeks, and I know I am not alone in how this all feels.
May is mental health awareness month and it is important for us all to be sure we are taking care of ourselves. I will share resources for you here as well.
