Don’t beat yourself up so much. ADHD isn’t easy to deal with, and being “perfect” is over rated. All kids really care about is that you spend time with them, that’s what they will really remember.

When you have ADHD it takes a lot longer and more work to establish new habits and routines. Pick one thing that bothers you but you feel could be an achievable goal and would add value to your life or peace of mind.

Even if it’s just “one really great meal a week”, or learning one new quick meal that is a bit healthier. Heck… maybe it’s just practicing putting your keys in the same spot every day. Even the small things can help us feel better. 🙂
