Have you heard of decision making fatigue? If you’re a mom, I’m sure it just rang a bell for you. I don’t even know if it’s a thing, but it is to me because I just made it up.

I am the decision maker for everything- literally everything and so, I’ve concluded that I suffer from decision making fatigue.

When the kids need doctors appointments
What time the apts will be
When can I take them
When we need groceries
What groceries we need
If they need tutoring
If they need extra curricular activities
What schools to register them in
If we need to change schools
If they need new school shoes or coats or bags or gloves or backpacks or lunch pales
If they need new toys
I know they don’t but u know what I mean
If and when it’s time to and how to discipline
If we should throw a birthday party or keep it small
Who we should invite
Who we shouldn’t
If we should make family plans this weekend
Where the family plans will be
If we should squeeze in a date night
Where we should eat
What we should eat
When we should eat


I am the decision maker for everything and anything and quite frankly I am struggling from decision making fatigue. It’s so darn hard.
