#mamavation Monday: Sometimes You Just Have to Take Care of You



It was a long weekend, filled with fun. Yesterday I decided I just needed to stop and take care of myself.


We went to the beach yesterday and I got sunburned, badly, which is unheard of on the Oregon Coast. Today I’m in pain every time I move. I decided I just needed to make the choice and have a down day. Just a me day. I spent the day relaxing, drowsing, playing android games, and watching shows. My boys didn’t mind after the busy day yesterday they enjoyed cartoons and playing on their own in the playroom.


I can’t express how important it is for you to take a day to yourself sometimes. It is better to stop and relax than burn yourself out, be cranky for days, and run yourself ragged. You will be a better mom and feel better faster than if you keep pushing yourself.

So if you need to stop and take some time for yourself today please do!


I hope you have an amazing week!
