To me, Mother’s Day is a time to spend with my boys. It’s having those
wild precious little boys that gives me something to celebrate on Mother’s Day.
But, there are other times when OhDearLord, do I need some Me Time.
So, I’m joining in with Courtney at The Mommy Matters for Me Time Monday.
Last week was a bit crazy: we had just returned from a week away for Spring Break. Getting back into the routine and playing catch up kept us busy. Add in work, a preschool field trip, housework, the gym, and all the typical mom stuff.
By Friday, I was starting to feel worn out. School drop-offs and then running around to get last minute items for my Bear’s fifth birthday party the next day. Getting my younger two to their grandma in the afternoon so that I could attend Monkey’s kindergarten Mother’s Day program.
And we had a long weekend ahead of us: a birthday party for Hubs’s friend that night, Bear’s birthday party on Saturday morning, and of course Mother’s Day.
I caught sight of myself in the rearview mirror as I was driving and sighed. I LOOKED tired.
My hair was a wreck. And trying to find time to wash, blowdry, and style my obnoxiously thick and unruly hair was going to be impossible. But, I was TIRED of looking tired.
So, my Me Time? I called my hairdresser to see if she could squeeze me in for a wash and blowout.
Totally self-indulgent. It was something just for me.
But, do you know what? It was worth it.
I was in and out of the salon in about a half hour, feeling much better about myself.
AND, I didn’t have to fuss with my hair at all during our busy weekend. Don’t worry, I still showered. Shower caps are highly underrated.
I really need to remember to take more Me Time moments. What was your last Me Time moment?
