Mommy moments

Today I'm taking time for me. Instead of doing the dishes, I'm knitting. Instead of doing the laundry, I'm going to take the dog for a brisk walk. Instead of rushing to make a lunch to be eaten at my daughter's school, I'm going to take us out to lunch (and I'm blogging too).

Why you might ask? Because Mama's need to priorize (at least occasionally) time for themselves to do something rejuvenating.

And while I personally prefer the moniker of Mama to that of Mommy, I've found a fabulous resource called Mommy Moments that is not only easily accessible online but also FREE and just waiting to help you in getting your Mama groove back and moving forward in a positive way. Now I fully admit this course is not designed with Spirited Children in mind, but it is still a great resource which I wanted to pass on for those who might get something good out of it. An email comes to your inbox once every week for 8 weeks to help you be the best Mama you can be.

From the site:

Mommy Moments provide parenting lessons for mom that help:

  • Eliminate your mommy-guilt,

  • Raise your children to be grateful rather than spoiled,

  • Get some much needed self-care,

  • Naturally motivate your children to listen to you more,

  • Gain respect from your family,

  • Inspire your kids to do their chores without nagging,

  • Establish fun and easy AM and PM routines,

  • Boost your self-esteem and your child's self-esteem 10-fold!

If you give it a try, let me know how it goes for you. If it helps at all, consider passing on to another Mama who might need a little boost. And if you can today, take some time for yourself (whether you are a Mama or not)... do something just for you! If you could do one thing today to rejuvenate yourself (that is reasonable and affordable within your budget), what would you do? Please share (maybe it will help a Mama out there who is too worn out to even think up something to do for herself)!

  1. I'm actually going to clean up my craft clutter and that will take me miles towards feeling rejuvenated. I'm also going to finish putting together button cards for a vintage button swap I'm doing. Thanks for the link.
