Consistency is not a requirement for success, even though a lot of people will tell you otherwise. You are not them. You’re a mom with ADHD. You have tiny humans that are not predictable.

Struggling with your interoceptio…

I hate goal trackers. They are sticker charts for grownups. (I also despise sticker charts.) I’m not a New Year’s resolution person. I never stick with them.

Today I'm explaining what I do when I walk in the door after a long day. Before the chaos really takes off, I take a few minutes to sort the clutter of backpacks, diaper bags, lunch boxes, and work bags and prepare for the next day. This gives me less to do before bed and keeps the to-do list short in the mornings. Starting this chain of events set…
