Many busy moms like me fall prey to imaginary delegation. What is imaginary delegation? It's when you assign someone a task and fully expect them to complete said task, BUT you never explicitly asked them to do it. Have you ever done this? I had this realization when I found myself getting mad at my family for things (why didn't anyone set the table?!) when I never even asked them to set the table. Here's what I've learned: It's easier for you to speak your mind than for other people to read your mind.
