I’ve got a bad one. And I have them a lot- almost every Monday. It’s like a hangover from a super fun weekend with my kids. Melissa and I talk about this all the time- we sit right next to each other and every Monday we catch up on the weekend’s events (like her recent “Supernanny” experience). At the end of the laughs we each let out a sigh and finish each other sentence – “I hate Mondays.”
As a full-time working mom, I relish every moment with my kids that the weekend brings. And the better our time together is, the harder it is to get back to work on Monday. Whether you choose to work or choose to stay home, Mondays can be tough no matter what. If you’re headed back to work, you’re missing the kids and counting the days until Friday and if you’re home, you’re missing your loved one and the extra hand you had for the last two days.
I’m looking for a little help here- what’s your cure for “The Mondays?”
