Being a mom is hard work. Ever since I transitioned to a 100% stay-at-home mom, it’s been hard on me. I went from college to the Army so for my entire life, I’ve been doing stuff outside the house every day. As a mom, I get to see my kids every day and I save money not having them in daycare but it still has it’s moments of stress. I am a firm believer that moms need a time out from their kids to be a good mom. One of the best things I’ve done lately for myself is to get a babysitter to come to the house 3 mornings a week. Blueberry is at school in the mornings and so I get a kid-free morning 3 times a week. It’s just a couple hours but it does wonders for my sanity. Being able to take a break and regroup is key to being a good parent. I am so glad to have found a new sitter here (especially since our one in Hawaii was amazing) because taking “me time” means that when it’s “mom time” again, I feel refreshed and ready to take on my crazy crew.
One of my favorite ways to take a time out is to exercise. It’s cold here so I have to bundle up or go to the gym but for that hour, it’s the best. Since our youngest isn’t sleeping through the night completely, exercising gives me some extra energy to get through my busy days and busy nights. Luvs also understands the importance of “me time” and committed to making diapering easier. Since life isn’t easy, at least diapering should be.
Another way to get some me time is to team up with my husband. Making sure each parent gets an uninterrupted shower or even just a quick trip to the store without dragging the entire crew out, it is important for us to work out a plan of action. Sometimes stay-at-home moms have to put their time on the backburner so making sure your partner understands the amount of time I spend not alone means that he can better offer more opportunities for time to be alone.
And since I also have 2 still in diapers, having a diaper that offers a great value for the money is key. They’re new Luvs Ultra Leakguard Diapers with NightLock Plus™. Softer and more absorbent than before, with large stretch tabs for easy fastening, ultra-leakage protection and a money-back guarantee, Luvs provide features babies and parents need for less cost than premium brands. Right now, you can save $1 on any diaper pack.
