How about a Mother's Month?
Having had the luxury of a whole quiet hour to myself in Costa yesterday afternoon whilst the two bubs slept, I got to thinking about treats. Steaming coffee, a brownie and the new "Mother & Baby" magazine all in peace and quiet was a lovely, but all too rare, treat. Just like it is for all you other busy mummies out there. All too often the day dissolves in a mass of commitments to everyone else, childcare, work, laundry, cleaning, cooking, chores and errands. Where are we in all that?
So I got to thinking, instead of just being spoilt with treats and time to enjoy them tomorrow, Mothering Sunday, what if we turned it into a Mother's Month? Just one little treat, and the time to enjoy it, each day for a month. What would you ask for? How would you spoil yourself, or get everyone else to spoil you? Let's get a list together, I'm sure we can easily come up with 30 things.
Then, on the basis that once you do something every day for a month it becomes a habit, we'll become happy, nurtured, treasured individuals at the end of it, managing to carve something for ourselves out of each and every day. (We can but hope anyway...) Join me!
So, how do you want to be spoilt? What's a treat for you?
