I am the worst at taking a break. Ask my husband. When something needs to be done or falls under the tagline “Jamie’s job” I can’t let it go. Somehow, over the years, mothering has fallen under this. It’s not like I look at my kids like a job, but there’s so much heart/time/prayer/life invested in them that I find it hard to step away. But I’m thinking I need it. To be a better mom and everyday human, I need that break. So here are my most encouraging and fun suggestions for ways to gently put the mantle down and take a break on Parent.co.
