There will come a time when my house will be spotless again, but that day is not today.
Stop. Just stop.
And here's the thing: The way I respond to my kids during this hellish time of day makes me feel like a garbage mom.
That's right: The "gems" that someone swore would change my kids' behavior and my life were useless.
I’ve spent years avoiding the pool in my backyard. That's over now.
