Let’s face it, moms, at this point in the summer it’s all about NOT FALLING APART. You’ve been juggling everybody’s wacky summer schedules, keeping everyone fed, bathed and lice-free and making sure the babysitter gets paid. You even wedged in a family getaway (where you still had to do laundry!). But now, with just a few sweet weeks left of summer, it’s hitting you that you’re tired. And the back-to-school push is just around the corner—holy ****! You need a mini break, but you’ve used up all your vacation days. It’s time for some #selfcare.
What’s self-care you might ask? Think of it as a breather. A personal day for the soul. It’s about being kind to oneself. And it’s genius. So sit back, relax and feel better.
