Happy Kids = Happy Parents

Makes sense, doesn’t it? That’s great and all, but what if, as a mom, you don’t feel that happy all the time? What if the stress of day to day parenting overshadows those golden moments with your kids? What if you’re becoming disconnected from your inner cheerful self?

But between my job, and taking care of he kids and the house, so much stuff falls between the cracks, no matter how hard I try. It’s very discouraging. Then I get into this gray funk about everything, and I know I need to cheer up before I affect my kids. How can I be a happier mom?
