They say that the key to enjoying motherhood is taking it one day at a time, living in the moment as best you can, as often as possible. But I don’t think I’m alone in feeling that this can be very hard to do. You get caught up in your to-do list, trying to keep the kids happy and fed and occupied, but not really ever plugging in fully. In fact, lately it feels like all I can do is count down the number of hours I have to get through until bedtime. Everything else is pushed by the wayside.
