I wrote a blog post about this very topic earlier this year. You can check it out at whatthepickles.wordpress.com, titled To Go Mommy Crazy or Save Myself. The gist is that in order to be the best Mom I can be, I have to take time to do something for me. Sanity is essential in getting through the day, especially because kids are trying so hard to make you go insane. But just a little something every now and again helps get through those days when someone is trying to flush the remote control down the toilet. Good luck staying sane everyone!
