Mama Monday – Pedicures Anyone?

If you are anything like me, you take care of everyone in the house first and then if, you have time and more like energy left over you do something for yourself….sound familiar?

I know and everyone tells you that you are a better mom/wife/partner/everything if you do take time for yourself, so I did just that this weekend and took a couple of delicious hours just for myself!

Ok, so I did get the car washed – but I sat in the sun by myself for 30 minutes WITH MY EYES CLOSED – can’t do that with a 13 month & 3 1/2 year old with you. I then treated myself to a juice smoothie and headed over to the nail salon for a pedicure and mini-massage. Maybe the best three hours I have had in a couple of months!

You don’t have to make a big production out of taking time for yourself – just do simple things that give you a chance to just be.

Kick your feet up everyone once in awhile….I promise, you deserve it!

Lost in motherhood

Me and My Beautiful Baby Boy

My current life consists of diaper changing, breast feeding, and comforting a cranky infant. Alright, alright, it also includes baby coos, sweet smiles and nuzzles from an extremely cute two month old boy. So why can I only focus on what I can’t get done? How about I give you a little sample? I am now lousy at responding to my friends emails. I forget to RSVP to important events in my friends lives. I didn’t know my girlfriend had stopped working in October. I forgot to pay the mortgage, don’t worry they aren’t going to foreclose on my house, but I now lack the time to get the bill paid…and I use bill pay, so technically it is a click of the button. How is it possible that I haven’t done it yet? I honestly don’t know. These are just the trivial things I haven’t gotten to, and don’t get me started on my career that is also currently on hold with no definite time frame of when I am going back.

Top 10 Mommy-Must-Haves

I was at my Sip and See: sip champagne and see the new baby.  Because she is my fourth child, a traditional baby shower complete with games and a gift registry was unnecessary.  In fact, I begged for the invitation to read “No Gifts Please,” but was ignored by my gracious hostesses.   And so I sat in a chair amidst a pile of gifts and began to add to my already vast collection of baby gear.

At this point in my parenting career, I’m ready to purge. I can’t wait until the baby outgrows the infant car seat, so I can FINALLY give it away. I can’t wait until she’s too big for the swing, so it can cease being part of my family room furniture. As I opened my gifts, I thought, “there can’t possibly be anything this baby needs.” How wrong I was.

So, here in reverse order is my top ten:  all new items that I discovered on this, my fourth and final child. How did I ever live without…
