WASHINGTON - Tired as a Mother: Health, Happiness, and Hacks highlights the struggles to calm the everyday chaos of being a mom. Allison describes her struggle with being part of the “sandwich generation”:
Hi, I’m Allison Seymour and I'm the proud mom of three wonderful, talented, loving, intelligent girls. Sydney, Skylar, and Spencer, aka “Baby,” help me to live my best life every day.
I’m sure a lot of you have seen our social media shenanigans and can see I love the relationship I’ve carved out with them.
And up until recently, taking care of my dad was also a big part of my life.
Yes, I was, like many of you still are, part of the what some call the “sandwich generation.”
My dad sacrificed and cared so much for me my entire life so taking care of him was, of course, a no-brainer, but could be a struggle sometimes.
I found myself trying to give myself equally to my three girls, my husband Marc and take care of the needs of my dad.
Trying to figure out what should be the day's priority, what can wait another day, another hour even left me “Tired As A Mother,” and although Papa has gone to claim his wings, I know many of you could really use a few life hacks to make this aspect of your life a little bit easier.
