After reading a post from Ashley about needing a day off from her kids I started to think about what I'm doing for me to make sure I can get through the summer without a meltdown. Here are a few things I'm doing for me:
- Yoga! For the last three weeks Nana has taken the kiddo's on Wed. mornings while I get to go to a yoga class! Yoga is something from L.B.K. (Life Before Kids) which I loved and never really got back, until now. It's a great class, and although I'm rusty at best, I love it. Thanks Nana.
- I was given a gift certificate for an hour long massage and have been saving it for a rainy day. I plan to dust it off sometime this summer to give myself a break.
- Today is the first day of my Noni experiment. I've heard wonderful things about it for years now, so here I go. I'll write about my findings, if any. I figure that I need a boost in my health now while I don't get many breaks.
- Gardening. A lot of people garden around here and say that it's therapeutic. So far I'm thinking that maybe the people talking about it weren't mom's, but I'm not giving up yet.
So what are you mom's doing out there for yourselves? Blogging? Putting the kids down for naps? Hopefully something to keep the meltdowns for the two year olds.
