Every once in a while, mommy needs a little “me” time. But with our busy schedules there isn’t always time for a peaceful morning hike or a refreshing stroll through the park. So what’s an overstressed, overworked, burnt-out mom to do?
We all know that fresh fruits and veggies are the very best choice when it comes to snacks for our little ones. As much as you really want to spent hours cutting kiwis into prefect little flowers and carving wild animal figures out of bananas, you live in the real world. Quick, convenient and healthy are the magic trifecta of kid snacks. As you zip through the house packing lunches for summer camp or preparing for a long Saturday at the soccer field, you need something simple to get everyone out the door.
When Daylight’s Saving Time hits is usually about the time I realize I am going to be escorting my children to the pool on a regular basis in a mere two month’s time. Therefore, I must shed the extra pounds not-so-discretely hidden under my winter sweaters.
When you ask your wife/mother/partner/Bombshell what she wants for Mother’s Day, there’s a 9 to 1 chance that she says, “Oh, I’m happy just knowing you and the kids are safe, happy, and healthy.”
Whether the object of your affection is your mother, an aunt, your sister or a close friend, choosing the perfect gift for Mother’s Day can be a challenging task. Flowers fade, and buying a blouse or scarf can be tricky when it comes to figuring out the right size and color. As for candy, well, the ingredients in most candies read like a list of items to buy for a chemistry laboratory experiment!
Who doesn’t love a mani-pedi every now and then, or maybe even a facial or massage? Once you become a mom, though, expensive spa sessions often become a distant memory. Who has time for “me” time when what you really need is to catch up on sleep! And even if you’re one of the few, enviably well-rested mamas out there, you might not have so much disposable income to spend on these kinds of indulgences, what with diapers, baby food and college savings account contributions draining your funds.
If you’re thinking of getting pregnant, or already have passed that home pregnancy test with flying colors, you’ll want to make sure you’re doing everything you can to grow a healthy baby. That means quitting smoking and drinking, exercising in moderation, eating a healthy diet—and taking a prenatal vitamin every day.
