Wow, a hectic week!

Hey mommies, it has been one hectic week in our home getting ready for the school year to begin, running errands, you know, the normal mommy things. A friend (who doesn't have kids) made a comment to me the other day and basically said how she doesn't really think being a mom must be a hard or busy job (I know mommies, you guys are probably falling out of your chairs laughing right now, but unfortunately, she was being serious!). I know non-mommies can't really understand what we do on a regular basis, but we all know it's definitely not easy! First of all, as mommies, we are always on-call 24/7 making sure we are always alert to the needs of our children. Second of all, we are raising human beings, which is the most rewarding-yet still challenging task in the entire world. We have to make sure every need of our family is taken care of, which is no easy task. I started to realize that we need to give ourselves credit for all that we do! So, mommies out there, promise me that this weekend you will take one hour for yourself to relax and recharge. Take a bubble bath, read a book, take a walk, just do something fun for yourself! Because we all know, a stressed mommy isn't as effective as a happy mommy, and we need to teach our children to take time for themselves once in a while to de-stress so they can lead productive lives someday!

Have a great weekend mommies of the world! ~Marina
