Modern moms live in Overwhelmia
I wrote a few paragraphs of this column between school drop-off and an appointment. I sent a bunch of emails between making dinner and taekwondo. Bedtime reading with the kids, then more writing at 1 a.m., after a few hours of sleep. Then back up at 4 a.m. to write and sign up for summer camp.
There's a name for this. It's called "time confetti." It's miserable. And it's part of why we are all Overwhelmed.
