We set up the meal chains, sewing circles and food drives. We do the essential or remote work and make it look seamless, even though we juggle. Struggle. Zooming kids, looming deadlines and grocery-bingo fade in and out of days without edges. We manage our fears and just keep on soothing. We remain available and reliable to the people in our lives. Being at home has always meant being busy.
The next great act for Moms may just be learning to self-care ‘in place.’
You may have found your footing emotionally, financially or professionally before the pandemic. Or you were about to unravel and needed a serious reset.
