Sep 25, 2017 08:41PM ● By Fredericksburg Parent Staff

You know those moments. Those times when parenthood just hits you like a freight train. Your baby simply stopped sleeping. Like, full stop no sleep. Your toddler is cutting all her teeth. Your kid is baiting you or teasing their sibling relentlessly. Homework gets lost. Projects forgotten. Let's not even discuss the struggle that is bedtime. Sometimes being a parent feels like you're just surviving the dream. You love your life and your kids more than you could ever imagine... but it's hard. The trenches of parenthood are deep. Totally worth it! But they are deep. In moments like this we need to breathe, lean on our tribe, give ourselves some grace, and read something inspirational to get through it. We'd like to help with that last part.
