When you’re a mom, you’re on duty 24/7, and it can be hard to catch a break or find a few minutes to yourself. We all know how great it feels to go to the bathroom by yourself every once in a while, enjoy some much needed R&R, or even skip out on a cloth diaper laundry day every once in a while.
When you’re a mom, your needs typically come last, and you are constantly putting other people before yourself.
But when you’re a mom, it’s also important to do things for yourself. You know, something JUST FOR MOM. Whether it’s take a nap, read a book, knit, cook, sew, paint, garden, or really anything else you enjoy, treat yourself!
For this week’s giveaway, we want to treat one special mama, who will win an “I’m a Genius Travel Mug,” a “You’re One Good Mum T-shirt,” a $20 Gift Certificate to Cotton Babies, and a bumGenius, Flip or Econobum cloth diaper of their choice!
To enter, tell us how you like to spend your “me” time.
