From The Confessional: ‘I’m So Tired...’
So... so... tired.
There’s the kind of tired that comes from not getting enough sleep; it’s safe to say that pretty much all parents have that kind. But there’s also the kind of tired that comes from general parenting, household responsibilities, societal expectations, feeling touched-out... and everything else you might have on your plate. This week in the Scary Mommy Confessional, 12 parents share about what’s making them really, really, really tired.
