So being a mom of two kids now and with my recent child being four months old. I feel like I don’t have enough time in the day for myself!
I love makeup, doing my hair getting manicures and pedicures. Now a days my usual outfit is pajamas. I am exclusively breastfeeding with the occasional breast milk by bottle. My little one is still eating every 3-4hours. He also loves attention and if he doesn’t get it he will let you know lol. So having mommy time or me time is pretty rough. I could have some time to myself in the morning from like 8 A.M.-10 A.M. but to be honest I would rather sleep with him. My partner Sam gets up for work pretty early anywhere from 5 A.M.-6 A.M. and he’s one of those people who needs the alarm to go off several times lol. So once he leaves I have the small window of “rest” before i get my daughter up for bed.
The most mommy time I have really ultimately had which was awesome is getting my manicure and pedicure. I felt so relaxed and literally almost fell asleep. I enjoy that time but I also hate to stay away from him for a while. I also have to remind myself that I do have to take care of myself to take care of of my children as well. So I know that being home while the baby is sleeping that I should relax instead of doing laundry even though I have a few baskets right now that should be folded or a few dishes that could be washed. Shhh don’t tell anyone. I also know that during the day time sometimes I have to make myself get up to do things. I praise those working mommies who do it all. All mommy’s are strong! I am very fortunate to be able to stay home and take of the children.
So mommies don’t forget to take care of yourself and have some mommy time! I know a warm epsom salt bath is in my near future. I may possibly have a glass of wine or two 🙂
