Inside: Every wonder how to turn a bad day around? The answer could be simpler than you think. Try these small moment fixes to be a better mom today!
Sometimes you have those sunshiny days. The baby slept through the night. Dinner is in the crock pot by 9:00 AM. The toddler is happily playing on the back porch. You’ve got a cup of coffee in hand, and you’re out of your PJs, ready to tackle anything.
But maybe today is not that day.
Are you having one of those days?

Just start simple. Do just one of these ideas below. I promise you won’t regret it!
It seems to me you have two simple choices, mama:
1. Thow a pity-party and spend the rest of the day wishin’ and hopin’ tomorrow turns out better. (Ha! I’ve tried this. It ain’t working.)
2. Take action! Be proactive and turn the day around with these easy ideas to be a better mom in the small moments.
