Hey Guys, it’s been awhile. A few quick notes, site has been revamped some. A sale is going on currently until this COVID-19 thing is over and I have a few new products to launch hopefully in the coming weeks. All that said, let’s jump into today’s topic; the infamous stay at mom life.
First off, I just want to say no matter what, Mom life is rough. You are shamed for every damn choice you make or don’t make. Working mom life is hard too, I’ve done it but today I want to focus on staying home life.
Ive been a mom for 4 years. Worked the first 2 years of that and now, I stay at home.
I learned a few tips I want to share. Hopefully it will ease some stress and assist a new mom or new to staying home momma.
First off- Schedules. Now, honestly I’m not all gung-ho but I’ve found that a semi structure works best for my home. Some houses may need a structure much more rigid. Which is totally fine! By schedule I mean,
-wake up and bed times are the same 7 days a week.
-3 meeals a day with snack times roughly the same.
-nap time the same 7 dyas a week and for my oldest is quiet time in his room.
-Im working to Incorporate activity times, but thats a tough one LOL.
-Take time for yourself. Early in the morning or later at night.
-ALWAYS HAVE ACTIVITIES ON HAND. The dollar tree- dollar stores are great for this. Even the Target dollar spot too.
Self care is vastly important to anyone and everyone. It can help “fill up your cup”, give you a fresh restart, calm you down, and help with being touched out.
Simple things like waking up earlier than your kids to have coffee alone to taking a bath late at night to a quick face mask… it all counts. If you are the lucky ones that have sitters available- DO NOT FEEL GUILTY over leaving for a few hours to refresh yourself. You deserve it.
How do you survive the day to day life at home? Let me know in the comments!
