We’ve met before! I saw you in the parking lot struggling with your child and now you’re in the express lane purchasing a quick meal for tonight. You look worn out from trying to wrangle 3 hungry kids into behaving and it looks as if you are about to lose the battle. Yup, I’m pretty sure I know you.
In fact, I do know you!
I know you love being a mom and adore your kids but sometimes you wish things could be different.
You desire to have a calm home but with an ADHD child, you don’t have much time to let your guard down. I’ll bet you’ve even dreamed about what it would be like if you had a second set of eyes and an extra pair of hands.
Finding time for yourself is rare and keeping things together is a daily challenge. You want your home to be organized. But order? What’s that? It’s not even on your radar. You’d just like to be able to find last nights dinner dishes underneath the pile of papers on the dining room table.
You don’t ask for much. Just a couple extra hours in your day. Cause you’re sure more time will make things better. Or at the very least, allow you to wash yesterday’s crusty breakfast bowls still sitting in the sink and get another load of laundry done.
But more than that, finding a quiet place to hide (other than the bathroom) to regain some sanity is number one on your to-do list. Am I right?
So how did things get so out of control?
When did getting one day ahead lead to two days behind? Why do you keep running from one mini-crisis to another putting out fires then collapsing in a heap at the end of the day only to do it again when the sun comes up? How did you wind up leading such a crazy, frantic, out-of-control life?
I’m guessing it’s been so long you can’t even remember.
That’s okay…I get it.
Can I be frank with you for just a minute?
The reason I know you is because I was you 30+ years ago. I’ve been right where you are. I’ve lived just like this. And I’ve asked those very questions. So I understand the struggles you’re going through.
I know exactly what it feels like to be out of control, to never gain any traction with your kids’ behavior or to find any time to just simply relax. And…I know what it feels like to be defeated.
But…I also know what it’s like to take back control and find order again. To see real change and to be victorious! And, I want the same for you.
I want you to know what it’s like to be a champion mom.
To feel what it’s like to go through your day with confidence. And to gain traction in the areas of your life that are keeping you stuck.
