We, the mothers: why this Sunday matters and what we're really asking

We, the mothers: why this Sunday matters and what we're really asking

We, the mothers, are the women who worry in the dark. We wipe and Google and take the temperature and make the decision. We fold the laundry and cook the meals and bear all the invisible workload that isn't paid or Instagrammable, as the keepers of schedules, shopping lists and meal plans. Sometimes when I scan a room, I think every woman in there could tell me the current status of what's in her dryer, how much milk is in her fridge and what theme days her kids have to dress for this week. It's exhausting on even the best of days.

Five things coming up after Easter: plan with me

Staying on your A game this time of year takes some doing and May goes even faster, with graduations and year's end ceremonies. Scrambling at the last minute doesn't work for my household. There's nothing fun about last-minute trips to the store and night-before craft projects and before you know it, you're hot-gluing caterpillar antennae onto clothes pins at 2 a.m. with a mug of cold coffee and your own tears.
