Mothers Day is on the horizon, so what do Mothers REALLY want? The answer: A break, a happy family day out wth no tears, a clear mind, a tidy house, an interrupted bath, a day to herself. I think what Mothers REALLY want this Mothers Day is not so much the flowers, the chocolate, the cards (however nice and thoughtful they can be)… it is simply a day just for her; I mean isn’t that the reason its called Mothers Day?
Here are some ideas, if your struggling to grasp the concept, of how this could be achieved; Mama Guilt free might I add! YOU DESERVE IT, so stop telling yourself for whatever reason you do not!
I am an avid believer that taking Mum time out is essential to Motherhood and with the help of the amazingly talented Siobhan from One Mama One Shed I am letting you all know why relaxation is so important for Mothers. I have delved into this topic before in my post ‘Maxin’ Relaxin’: Why ‘chilling’ is the secret to Mamahood’ and I have now been given the opportunity to stress the matter even more with a fantastic GIVEAWAY for two lucky Rock and Roses Mama readers (with an obligatory muffin and mug of tea of course!)
I posted a while back about my epiphany to achieving serenity as a busy rockin’ mama and how I have started to adopt ‘let it go’ moments throughout my days to ease the building pressure that can erupt from the stresses of everyday life. Lets face it, we mamas are a busy bunch and if we can just take a breath, relax and ‘let it go’ from time to time I think it would ease our mental suffering! I have decided to share a few of my ‘let it go’ moments each week that have ended up becoming points of laughter instead the bubbling of a vocal volcano that could erupt at any given point!
