Mom care is important! This is why you haven’t heard from me in a while…
Where have I been, you ask? Sleeping. Haha, no not the whole time, but at least the recommended 7-8 hours a night. It has been glorious! I seriously feel like a million bucks. I have been sleeping, and enjoying the summer with my two little loves. Oh yeah… and my husband too. Can’t forget him! He just started going out of town for work again, so we don’t get to spend as much time together as we would like. That is why my main goal has been keeping the kids busy, so that our weeks go by fast.
So, back to the question of my whereabouts…
Honestly, I have made time for sleep. I have also made time for getting on the floor type of playing with my kids, and doing fun summertime activities. The house is clean, and I’m making most meals from scratch. I am on summer break (from taking online college classes), and realized that it was for my own well being that I treat it as such. The kid’s movies have actually been funny (we just watched Angry Birds), and the aquatic center is pretty fun.
This mom is now well rested, and I actually have the patience to spend all this time with my kids! I am not stressed out, telling my 3 year old to “go play” when he keeps asking me to race him. I am not resenting my 10 month old when she wakes up early from her nap because I could have used that extra 10 minutes studying or paying bills. Oh boy, did I need this time to just enjoy my kids.
We all have stuff to do. A lot of moms (including me) want to DO IT ALL. What I want to tell you is that it is A-OK to take a break from it all once in a while for some mom care. It has really helped me be more thankful for everything. I like staying buys, don’t get me wrong. I am now getting back in business mode. Pre school is about to start for my son, and the baby will be napping a lot… and there is only so much cleaning I can do! I have missed the blog, so there will be more posts to look forward to in the coming weeks.
I hope everyone has had an awesome summer! May your transition from the long break into “back to school” be smooth, and don’t forget to squeeze the most out of the last bit of the season before fall 🙂
Thank you for reading my ramblings! Talk to you soon.
