You know you need a break when you have this text conversation with the babysitter:
Me: Can you babysit?
Me: Anytime. I will work around you.
Me: I will pay you double if you come today.
Wisdom I heard this week from another mom:
Your family is never going to say to you, "Oh you've done so much. All that laundry. Sweeping those floors. Washing those windows. Why don't you take a break? Take some time to yourself." No. They will take and take and take. It is your job to know when you need a break and to make time for yourself.
