I am a stay at home mom.
I am blessed by the opportunity to be able to care for my kids
24 hours a day.
7 days a week…
OK..so I get tired sometimes. Actually-exhausted is a better word for it. Taking care of children is difficult at times, so I do get tired. Of course, all other moms will understand what I mean. Things can be overwhelming sometimes and you can get extremely tired. To try and prevent this, I have been looking into total restore reviews as they are supposed to improve gut lining and eliminate tiredness. Maybe that will help some mothers. Anyway, this pretty much sums up my day:
I swear someone took a picture of me and sketched it out just for this cartoon. The messy bun (and not the “cute” messy bun that’s all over Pinterest, a REAL messy bun that is complete with baby spit up 72% of the time). The pajamas (Sometimes I change it up and put on yoga clothes to make me feel more “dressed”). The screaming naked baby in one arm and the angry toddler pulling at my leg. It can be extremely overwhelming sometimes, however, you just get on with it. I always look forward to the evening, when both kids are sleeping and I get a couple of hours to myself. In these hours, I will sometimes take a nice bath to try and de-stress. To do this, I will use wholesale cbd bath bombs to release some calming energy. My friend actually told me about those bath bombs. She’s even thought about selling some herself to help other busy mothers to relax after a long day.
I have noticed a few other things that keep me sane though. I thought maybe they can help encourage a few other stay-at-home moms.
1. Get out of the house. Maybe not every day, but a few times a week. Visit friends, go to the park. Enjoy life outside of your four walls 🙂
2. Have a schedule. I know there is NO way to perfectly stick to a schedule, but at least have an idea of how your day should go. Be intentional. Know the times your little ones are likely to meltdown and plan around it as best as possible.
3. Read my Bible. While this might not be of interest to everyone, it definitely helps me. I admittedly need to be more consistent in this area, God’s word gives me encouragement and peace that I get from nowhere else. I need to make it a priority to spend quiet time with Him (even if it’s just a minute at a time. He will meet me there!)
