Working part time, being a mom, wife, and director of all things family related are great as long as Mommy is HAPPY 🙂 That old saying, “If momma ain’t happy, nobody’s happy.” Is so true and for some weird reason I am hearing it a lot lately.
So how do I stay happy and refreshed to give everything my all? I usually plan 2 or 3 nights a month with my best girl friends. I play in a monthly Bunco group with women that are so fun that even pregnant I get a great rush just being around them. Then I usually make the effort to make time to either get a pedicure, go out to dinner, a cheap movie or something with some girl friends a few other times during the month.
I think this is important for all moms. Even if you just get away by yourself to get some ME time. Every mom deserves it and should demand it to be a better momma. Everyone needs a break even if it just to window shop or take some extra time buying groceries.
There is a great movie place in our town with cheap movies for only $3.50 so tonight my girlfriend and I saw Nanny Diaries. I will review that on Monday but a cheap movie is just one idea for a nice Mom’s Night Out. I challenge all moms to take at least one night or day a month for themselves.
