Not sure if part of being a mom is catching some sort of Disease to Please. But somehow it feels so difficult to just say "No!" sometimes. I don't mean "No" to candy or just another episode. That's all fine. But no to yet another activity. No to volunteering when you really don't have the time. No to a playdate when you really need to unwind. We want to be helpful, involved, do-it-all moms...but that's just the straight path to losing your sanity.
A number of us moms have gotten together on Instagram to spell out (literally!) how important it is just say no sometimes. Check out some of the entries on IG starting with @the-instillery then tell us what you’d like to say no to for a chance to win a Host & Toast letterboard.
