Being a parent, or better yet a mom... “Luxury” ends up having a whole new meaning to it. It’s not nice jewelry, make-up, or dressy/expensive clothes. A “luxury” becomes the simple things:
being able to take a shower/bath,
having alone time (especially when using the bathroom), getting to eat (or at least uninterrupted),
going shopping on your own (most likely for groceries - thank goodness for online shopping or I would be wearing the same 3 outfits all year long),
and time... time is the biggest luxury of all. (You put everyone’s needs - especially kids, before your own.) Now this isn’t complaining, only explaining how parenthood is, and how we take things for granted before having babies.
But I’d do this all over again; I’d give up my time, to have this kind of love that is not comparable to any other kind.
So you hear people say “ well you gotta make time for ____” , and yeah okay, they’re right...you end up working with what you got and find a way to take the time to do whatever it is....
So here I am, a few days without a shower, and I try to make the best “set up” in order to take a quick uninterrupted bath.
#momtip - As you can see there are toys, snacks, water, and an Amazon fire tablet (with Bubble Guppies on). And it has worked for me so far every time I have done this - knock on wood, because I’d be going a week without a shower if this wasn’t done 😝). So kudos to all you Mommas who are able to find your time to get that one thing done, that may take you all week to find the time to do! We are all cheering you on, giving you high fives when you finally do it (in the most #momcreativeway), or better yet cheersing (not a word, who cares) you with our glass of wine, or even better margarita.
Share a picture of your #momcreativeway with me! Of things you set up/or do with your kids, in order to get that one thing done 😜. *this isn’t just for Mommas, this is for all parents- #parentcreativeway 🥰
