I don’t have to tell you all that motherhood is a demanding, exhausting, 24/7 job. You know; you’re in the trenches! I just want to take a minute to remind you to take some mom time once in awhile. It’s so important to recharge and have some time for ourselves. With three kids, I know how hard it is to carve out any long length of time for myself, though. So I at least try to have simple little mom time “escapes” as often as I can. Here’s some ideas for how you can “escape,” Mama…
10 Ways to Escape for Some Mom Time
- Read A Magazine. (And NOT a parenting one!)
- Call A Friend.
- Enjoy A Cup of Coffee.
- Take A Shower!
- Try A New Recipe.
- Draw or Doodle.
- Turn On Some Tunes.
- Try a Yoga Pose or Two.
- Get Lost Online. (Can you say “PINTEREST?!”)
- Enjoy a Sweet Treat.
A “Sweet Escape” with DOLE Fruit Parfaits
I can get a little carried away with that last tip sometimes. (Let’s just say I have a close relationship with chocolate…) So I’m excited that I’ve found a lighter “sweet treat” in the new DOLE Fruit Parfaits. They feature a creamy layer topped with natural sweet fruit and are low fat and cholesterol free; sign me up! You can get DOLE Fruit Parfaits in three flavors: Pineapple and Cème, Apples and Crème, and Peaches and Crème. You can find more information and connect with DOLE through their website, on Facebook, and on Twitter.
