Being a special needs Mom is hard. Yet, anytime I pamper myself or take time away I feel guilty. I feel like a bad Mom. One of my best friends told me once “if you don’t take care of yourself, who will take care of them when you can't.” At first I didn’t get it. But after cancer, I understood completely.
So when I need some Mommy time, I usually soak in the tub or veg on the couch and watch funny instagram reels and tune out the world. Last night I did both! And surprisingly, I didn’t feel guilty! I enjoyed a lot hot bath! I used some new shampoo and conditioner called Olaplex from Ulta! When I say this stuff is the bomb.com…that is not an exaggeration! My hair was so soft, shiny and smelled great after one use! What???? I also used a new body wash by Kopari. Now listen, I have very dry, sensative skin. My skin was so soft after I used it AND I did break out! So happy!
And after my bath, I watched hours of instagram funny dog and cat videos! I laughed so hard I cried and my side hurt! You know the ones I’m talking about!!!! My favorite ones are where anything scares cats and they jump around like they’re walking on lava! 🤣 If you haven’t watched Instagram reels like those, it’s a must!
Today, I woke up refreshed and ready to conguer the week! So don’t feel guilty if you need some me time! And remember…if you don’t take care of yourself, who will take care of them when you can’t?
