SHOP LOCAL | Mommy Self Care – 10 Local Gift Ideas for Your Mom Friend

Since having a baby I have really been trying to make sure and take care of me. As a mother of 3 kids, I have realized that my name gets called a lot! I mean A LOT….to the point where I secretly want to change it sometimes. Don’t get me wrong I love being a mother, I really do, but sometimes I just need to find something to keep the kids occupied so that I can have some me-time. I have to say, thank goodness for the amazing selection of youtube songs out there that keep my little ones busy or else I would not know where to turn! But yes, enter my new found favorite words MOMMY – SELF – CARE!

Yep, I just made that up, but it’s something that we mothers should know more than we do. It is where we take a step back from our hectic mommy lives and do something for US. It can be anything that we want to do, not that someone else wants us to do. It can be reading a book, taking a bath, going shopping (hehehe – one of my faves) or just sitting and drinking a glass of wine.

I had the pleasure of attending a local blogger event and it was the perfect medicine for my dose of mommy self care. It was so much fun hanging out with other women; talking about being bloggers, being moms (of course we talk about them when we aren’t with them) and RELAXING. It was great!
