8- Remember, You can’t do everything:
To keep in mind, sometimes you aren’t being lazy; you simply have an unreasonable to-do list.

It’s all about making trade-offs in life, which is why deciding what it means to you not to be a lazy mom and having reasonable goals is crucial. For example, if you want to spend more time with the kids, you can postpone doing the dishes.
