How to be a Happier Mom

1. Sleep more. Go to bed when the kids do. Suddenly find enough energy and time to dive into those piles of random toys in the corners. Pack up five bags of outgrown playthings for another Freecycle family.

2. Let the babysitter go. Feel sad that you had to make a little disaster in her life. Know you made the right decision to be with Nora when she gets the impulse to bite, to be with Mia when she takes her first and her second and her eighth ice skating lesson.

3. Write less.

Glad you've made a decision that you feel overall, good about. Write less. Hmmm. Good point...

At the risk of writing more to explain how I write less, these days I'm trying to concentrate on honing and refining the stuff I've already done. "The world is so full of a number of things, I'm sure we should all be as happy as kings."

And I like your blog, Tracey.
