From one mom to another, it's important to treat yourself once in a while.
This is especially important for new moms, but certainly applies to moms of any age. However, the problem that arises around the first Mother's Day you celebrate (and technically, those for the next decade) is that your children are too young to know what it means to celebrate you on your special day.
So don't feel bad if you need to give your family a gentle nudge or, better yet, pamper yourself a bit.
What does this look like? Here are a few thoughts:
- Buy yourself a new outfit for your post-baby body
- Sit and watch a favorite show or read a new book while soaking your feet
- Trade in your hand-me-down diaper bag or purse for a new, trendy one
- Take time for a shower or bath (by yourself - without hands reaching under the closed door!)
- Better yet, go the extra mile to light a candle before the above-mentioned bath and lather yourself in sweet-smelling lotion afterwards
- Most importantly, do whatever you need to do to get a good night's sleep (asking hubby to take over a night feeding or investing in a good body pillow)
There isn't any one right way to be celebrated, just the way that is most meaningful to you. The key is to do at least one nice thing for yourself this Mother's Day.
So, go ahead and kick your shoes off, do your nails, or hit the town. We've picked some pampering products that every mom can appreciate (& enjoy Free Shipping, too!):
