My days look a little something like this:
6 am: Feed the baby
6:30 am: Shower; ready for my day
7 am: 2 yr old wakes up; start laundry; check calendar for day
7:30 am: Rest of kids wake up; start chores
8:00 am: Cook breakfast
7:00 pm: Dishes; bathe kids; story time
8 pm: Put kids to bed
8:30 pm: Start dishwasher; sweep; start load of laundry
9 pm: Sit down and maybe have a conversation with my husband but probably feed and rock baby to sleep LOL
Yep pretty much my whole day is go, go, go! Don’t get me wrong I LOVE my life and my job as a full time mom but sometimes it is exhausting and I am the first one to admit I don’t take much time for myself.
I have been thinking a lot about this lately and really time for me doesn’t have to take a lot of time or cost a lot of money. I have a few sure fire ways to pamper yourself and to enjoy the few precious moments you get as a busy mom!!
Good Hand Lotion
I don’t know about you but I wash my hands a billion times a day. Between changing diapers and dishes my hands take a beating! A huge luxury for me is hand cream. I know you might think such a little thing is silly but pampering your hands is a wonderful treat.
You might not have time everyday to put on a full face of makeup or do anything with your hair better than a pony tail but a good color of lip gloss can brighten up any tired face!! I always have one of these stashed in my purse and diaper bag.
Who has time to go to the dentist for expensive teeth whitening? I know I don’t but that doesn’t mean I don’t want a pretty smile!
I found the new Colgate® Optic White® Express White Toothpaste at Walmart and it has two times more of the professional whitening ingredient than the other Colgate® Optic White® Sparkling Mint Toothpaste! We all know moms are multi tasking geniuses and just by brushing you can have whiter teeth in THREE days*! Everyone has time for that.
Paint your Toes
I know its not warm and sunny everywhere yet but in AZ it is flip flop weather. I think taking the time to paint your toes is another way to pamper yourself and make yourself feel special. It always makes me smile when I look down and I have a pretty color on my toes.
As you can see these are all simple things and even if I went out and bought all this stuff at once you wouldn’t even spend 20 dollars and that includes a new toothbrush to go with my new toothpaste for my whiter teeth!!
*For best results, use as directed for 4 weeks.
