Welcome to day 9 of Happy Mom Days! 10 Days of taking care of you just in time for Mother’s Day. Today as you move through you daily tasks remember there are no perfect moms, but there are many things that you do well as a mom. Many of these things go unnoticed by your family, sometimes it feels as if it all is taken for granted. But WE know. We know about stocking the pink Bandaids for your angel when she gets a booboo, and the best drink to pack in you little guy’s lunch to impress all the first graders, which special shirt to have clean on school spirit day and where to find all the craft supplies you hoard for that DUE TOMORROW science project that was assigned a month ago.
We are moms.
We are list makers.
We are hug givers.
We are wish granters.
We are cupcakes at midnight bakers.
We are hard-working, cooks, teachers and carpool queens.
We know where the spare toothbrush resides when the current one gets flushed down the toilet.
We are tired, but can still sew a button, make sure that special costume is found for Halloween and that Christmas is magical despite all the spinning plates and juggling balls we are managing each and every day.
We are moms.
Happy Mom Day Tasks for The Day:
- Take a 15 minute ME-eting time slot today and just be you for a while. Read a book, take a quiet walk, sit in the sunshine, sing a song or dance a jig, Whatever brings a bit of joy to your heart.
- Take a walk around the house and find check to make sure that there is a bit of you in each room. A colorful pillow, maybe even with ruffles on the bed, a soft elegant afghan on the couch, a coffee cup in the cabinet that says MOM. Adding bits and pieces of you through out your home will give you a little boost as you walk through and make it feel less like you are cleaning house for everyone else but cleaning house for all of the family including you.
- Take a 15 minute beauty break tonight and use some of those fancy facial cleansers, clay masks, or scrubs and give yourself a mini-facial. You can also do this with just your regular facial cleanser and a soft cloth and then massage in facial lotion then rinse.
