I am that type of mom who never takes a moment for herself. My to-do list is a mile long and I don’t know if I will ever meet the end of it. Self-care is certainly not on that list anywhere. Somedays feel like they are never going to end. Add 4 toddlers into the mix and it is a daunting task to accomplish even the simplest of things. As moms, we forget to tend to our self-care needs. You know the needs that extend beyond a quick shower, the leftovers our children didn’t eat from their lunch plate, and our for the third time reheated cup of coffee.
Another issue with being the Mom is that in every single aspect we put ourselves last. We forget about ourselves and how crucial self-care can be when it comes to those around and especially when it comes to spending money on ourselves. If you are anything at all like me, it takes 5 seconds to convince myself that it is perfectly acceptable to spend $10 on my children’s baby wash but it takes me days to convince myself that it is acceptable to spend $5 on my own body wash. I have the money. I am not lacking, I just prefer to save where ever I can which means cutting corners on the items I actually need or want. Clearance Rack? That’s me. Mega Sales Event? You’ll find me there and probably with a coupon if possible. 7th Heaven, however, makes it possible to treat yourself to a little bit of luxury while on the go AND without spending a lot of money in the process.
