Happy Belated Mother’s Day

Bookmark and Share

I gave myself a small gift yesterday. No work. No writing. No blogging. No computer. It was lovely.
I decided to boycott my keyboard after a four hour car ride with the kids, and seeing Tanya’s post at The Motherwear Breastfeeding blog. Tanya tagged me to answer the following questions about how I’d like to take better care of myself. Here are her questions and my answers:
Set aside some time during which you can relax and reflect. Sit in a comfortable spot. Try not to think too much about your answers. Once you’ve answered, you’ll have a better idea of what you need to thrive. Ask yourself:
What do you miss most from your pre-baby life? Staying out late with my husband, without concerns about a 5:30 a.m. baby alarm clock.
What activity would renew, recharge, and reenergize your body? Taking modern dance classes on a regular basis. I have no more excuses now that I’ve weaned The Bear and it’s the spring time; I won’t freeze on the 10 minute walk to the dance studio.
What activity would renew, recharge, and reenergize your mind? Time alone.
What activity would renew, recharge, and reenergize your spirit? Sleep.
What gift can I give to myself today? Going to bed at 10:00 pm instead of 11:30.
When you look back at this time in your life, what will you regret not doing for yourself? Hiring an additional babysitter.
What is one thing – however small – that you can do to make self-care integral to my week? Exercising at least three times a week. Right now I don’t exercise at all, that is unless you count pushing a double stroller.
Now, I’m tagging Babytalkers, The Black Breastfeeding Blog and Cairo Mama to answer these questions.
