How to eat an elephant

I figured out the secret to successful Motherhood: Don't try to get anything done. Yesterday was a horrible day, I had everything planned out, starting with a walk. I did accomplish the walk, but nothing else got done after that. (Except for a whole lot of time outs!)

So, today I aspired to do nothing. Guess how good I felt when I did accomplish things? It was like bonus points! I decided that being the Mommy to three girls was enough on my plate, and as I let everything else slide, somehow I found the time to get most of it done. I didn't have the mental list ticking in my head of what had to get done. I think I actually accomplished more than I did yesterday.

It's like the saying goes about how to eat an elephant: One bite at a time.
