Motherhood IS an extreme sport!

Motherhood. It's an extreme sport you know?! What other sport requires endless bending over, lifting, running, and chasing. It's the reason why mom's need so many pairs of "comfy clothes."


I've been thinking a lot about Motherhood this week. It's exhausting at times, yet so rewarding. And what makes a good mom anyways? How do you be a good mom? I found a quote that sums it up perfectly!


Want to be a good mom? TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF!

Cry. Run. Lift. Go to therapy. Scream.

Be alone. Take a bubble bath.

Get a babysitter. Quit your job.

Get a job. Ride around town and blast your radio.

Get your nails done.

Whatever needs to be done, do it.

We need you to be okay. You've got this!

Sometimes as a mom, it's impossible to get everything done that needs to be done. But guess what? It's important to take care of ourselves too. This week I'm resolving to take a little extra time to fill my own cup. Here's what I like to do to take care of myself:


Get outside for 30 minutes of sunshine.

Take a nap.

Take a longer than normal shower.

Paint my nails.

Go to bed early.

Eat a treat.


I'm resolving to do better this week at taking care of myself. Who's with me?
