Save your parenting energy! I’ve made it a mission this year to use my energy more wisely. We have a finite amount of energy daily, and it should be used with caution.
Are we going to win some kind of award for having the cleanest house or the best cooked meals? I doubt it. So why stress about it? It’s an unhealthy obsession that parents (particularly women) seem to have. Do what you can and LET IT GO. Save that energy for things that matter most. Things like spending time with your little ones. Try finding ways to incorporate them into the daily chores.
Try to outsource whenever possible. There are great housekeeping and meal prep services available to help busy parents.
