Back to School is near…..
It’s that time of year again, well for most of us that are not lucky enough for year round school. But didn’t school just get out like two weeks ago? It’s actually 67 full days since my two youngest finished, but who’s counting.
As a kid, August meant school is coming, football is starting, my birthday is around the corner and here in the mid-west, summer is over! I LOVE summer, like love it with my whole being! The sun, the warmth, the pool and long, lazy days. Summer leaves no room for any kind of routines. I like to think I’ve got my crap together enough to continue routines in the summer but I’m only fooling myself! I’m lucky if my kids have baths twice a week. But now that August is here and the old familiar school routines will begin, it’s time to start thinking about taking care of you. It’s time to start remembering what day of the week it is.
Whether you are putting one in day care, entering one in high school or sending one off to college, you need to make time for yourself. Take the time once a day to do something for yourself. Reward yourself for making it through another summer with your sanity. If you are a working mom, a stay at home mom or a single mom, you can find 5 minutes a day to take care of you. You are the most important person in your children’s life. When you feel good, it shows and they know it.
