So today, let’s focus on having a mom’s day away. Call up your girlfriends and find a local beauty school and see what services they offer. If they do pedicures and massages, I’ll bet they are half the cost of a regular appointment elsewhere. Maybe you’ll get a group rate? Each of you can get a babysitter for a morning and away you go! Whatever it takes to rejuvenate yourself. Hopefully that part of you that thinks this is selfish can just hush. Because there is a lot of good in being able to recharge. Not everyone can be supermom all the time. A happy mom= happy kids. If it absolutely can’t work out that you all can’t go somewhere together, get together at a friend’s home and just have a morning of pampering. What to wear? Pack flip flops incase you need them for the pedicure (and a big bag to carry them in). And wear pants that can easily roll. And don’t fuss much with jewelry so when you’re lying on that massage bed, you aren’t uncomfortable. Can’t you just feel that massage now? Ahh.
