Confession: Downtime

Submitted by: Kieria

Houston, TX

I’m a mother of 3 all under 4 and expecting a fourth. I’ve been super mom the past 5 years but now my husband is finally in a position to work and let me stay home. And some day, I won’t lie, I just sit around and the kids run the house. I feel sometimes I can take a mental break even if that means the house gets dirty. Especially now being pregnant and my youngest is 5 months. I’m drained. But I feel like downtime is ok. Anyone else feel this way and doesn’t feel guilty about it?
